Publisher's Summary

If you think the next terrorist attacks are coming from the Middle East, think again. One of the world's most respected experts on radical Islamism returns to alert Americans to the future course of Islamist extremism: the troubled regions of Chechnya.

Bodansky draws on mountains of previously unseen intelligence from insider sources, offering the most comprehensive and startling portrait of the Chechenization phenomenon and what it means for the United States. As he reveals, the final years of U.S.-Soviet relations left Chechnya as a fertile breeding ground for the Mujahedin, and in the past decade a combination of militant native Chechen anti-Americans, anti-Russian agitators, and Middle Eastern jihadists have joined forces to help al Qaeda and the greater Islamist movement pursue its war against the West.

    "hard to follow"

    I listened to this book on tape and found it very hard to follow. Perhaps actually reading the book and seeing the words and names would help.

    "Very Slow moving"

    Filled with facts, but presented in a very droning manner. Made it hard to keep going.

    Story
    "Highly relevant, a bit too detailed"

    A long and almost too detailed history and review of the background, development and activities of radical Islam in the Caucasus region. While the narrative can be tedious at points, the details have relevance beyond Chechnya or the Russian Federation, as this book shows how they are thoroughly intertwined with Islamist organizations and developments elsewhere. This book shows a largely unrecognized part of the background behind current conflicts and how they are tied to other events.
