- 78 Downloads
This chapter introduces two case studies examined in this book — the North Caucasian republics of Chechnya and Dagestan. While the first part of the chapter undertakes a journey into history and ethnography of these two republics, the second part guides readers through the decades-long armed conflict in the region. From the start of the First Chechnya War in 1994 to the current Caucasus Emirate-led insurgency, this chapter allows the reader to grasp the particular historical, geo-political, and socio-cultural conditions which have led to the birth and proliferation of insurgent groups in the contemporary North Caucasus.
