In this book, Matthew Evangelista challenges Moscows justifications for the Chechen invasions by exploring the sources of both wars and the implications for Russias internal coherence and international standing.


Matthew Evangelista is professor of government and director of the Peace Studies Program at Cornell University, New York, USA. He is the author of the award-winning Unarmed Forces: The Transnational Movement to End the Cold War (Cornell University Press).


"It is... well researched, drawing on both a sizeable secondary literature and numerous Russian language sources... his arguments are convincing and any who believe that Russia under Putin is still on a reform path or moving towards democracy must engage with the points raised in this work, as the war in Chechnya remains central to the development of post-communist Russia." --Paul Kubicek, Oakland University, International Affairs, 1/1/2004 "... provides a fascinating and well structured picture of the background for and events leading up to the two wars. Evangelista's work should be required reading for anyone with an interest in Russia and its relationships with its federal partners... This is an important book, and makes a significant contribution to the limited library of literature on Chechnya... It is not only for experts, even those who have a very limited knowledge of the situation will be enlightened by it." --Graham Dyson, Centre for Peacebuilding and Conflict, International Journal on World Peace, 12/1/2003 "[letter to editor]" --Matthew Evangelista, Foreign Affairs, 5/1/2003 "[Evangelista] offers one of the few original, systematic discussions of a question that has attracted mostly sloganeering from both supporters and opponents of Chechen independence." --Lawrence A. Uzzell, Chechnya Weekly, 2/20/2003 "A close, meticulous study of the root causes of the Chechen Wars of 1994 and 1999, and an informative, scholarly examination of the impact these conflicts had on both Chechnya and Russia." -- The Bookwatch, 4/1/2003 "Evangelista provides a clear, focused analysis of Russia's ongoing war in Chechnya -- why the two wars were launched (in 1994 and 1999) and what they imply for the Russian political system as a whole." --P. Rutland, Wesleyan University, Choice "[An] impressive new book... a compelling synthesis of new insights from Russian soldiers, scholars, and policymakers." --Charles King, Georgetown University, Foreign Affairs, 3/1/2003
