Since the end of the Cold War, Chechnya has suffered two full-scale Russian military assaults, and is now in the seventh year of a brutal occupation. The casualties remain largely uncounted, and the fundamental issues at stake are routinely sidestepped in Russia and in the West. In this powerful argument for Chechen self-determination, Tony Wood considers Russo-Chechen relations over the past century and a half, as well as the fate of the region since the fall of the Soviet Union. "The Case for Chechnya" sharply criticizes the role of Western nations in their struggle, and lays bare the weakness - and shamefulness - of the arguments used to deny the Chechens' right to sovereignty.

Review:

TonyWood s book is an antidote to the prevailing wisdom that Chechnya srebels have always been nihilists and terrorists. He reminds us that adecade ago the Chechens were demanding nothing more than many othersmall peoples at the time of the Soviet breakup statehood and a newstart. In a world of cynicism and ignorance, Wood offers facts thatmany will find inconvenient and lays out an argument for which manythousands of Chechens mistakenly or not suffered and gave theirlives.--Sebastian Smith

Apassionate and eloquent case for Chechen statehood, well researched andreasoned. Whatever one thinks of state sovereignty these days, thispolitical project demands serious engagement, and his humanitarianconcerns cannot be ignored.--Georgi Derluguian
