Pressestimmen

."..scrupulously researched..." -

The National Interest

."..a remarkable book about the Chechen war...Col Schaefer's book does a fine job in summarising the breadth and depth of the conflict, and making the latest military thinking about insurgencies accessible, while steering clear of polemic or bias." -

The Economist

"This is definitely a good book and well worth reading. Although the author is military, it is a pleasant read and does not have the alphabet soup of acronyms that is too common with military writers. .. I strongly recommend this book to students of insurgency, counterinsurgency and history. There are already several good books out there on Chechnya. This one joins that group." -

The Journal of Military History

"A 'must-read' for those who are looking for answers about how to stop the brutality and violence in Southern Russia." -

The New Book Review

"A remarkable book ... Col Schaefer's book does a fine job in summarizing the breadth and depth of the conflict, and making the latest military thinking about insurgencies accessible, while steering clear of polemic or bias. This book tells you a lot about the Caucasus. And also about the brainpower assets of the American military." -

The Economist

" ... a first-rate study that is part history, part counterinsurgency theory, and part predictive analysis. . . . The North Caucasus is a complex and bewildering ethnic and cultural mix that is hard for a foreigner to understand. Robert Schaefer has done much to overcome this through his thorough research and balanced approach. His history of the region and the post-Soviet phase is especially well done. . . . strongly recommend." -

The Journal of Military History

.".. comprehensive and informative ... Schaefer's informed analysis of the Chechen insurgency makes this a book that every student of counterinsurgency or the Caucasus region should own." -

Military Writers Society of America

.".. enormously helpful in understanding the ongoing conflict in the North Caucasus, and the gnawing feeling of dread as Russia prepares to host the 2014 Winter Olympics ... free of cynicism and romance ... It makes one wish military analysts had taken on the Afghan puzzle with similar energy, say, a decade or so back." -

New York Times

"Thoughtful and comprehensive analysis ... useful to the policymaker ... helps answer the paradox that most of those who have studied the region grappled with: Why have the Russians never succeeded in extinguishing this 300-year old insurgency while, at the same time, the Chechens have never been able to win their independence?" -

New York Times

"Schaefer's debut is an in-depth critical assessment of the Russo-Chechen conflict that reflects a deep understanding of counterinsurgency in general and how it relates to that region specifically. . . . His reasoning is honest, well-researched and refreshingly free of partisan rhetoric. A "tour de force" in breadth and depth." -

Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Parameters

"This book presents the facts and gives the reader a basis for interpreting how much is hype, often Russian-proliferated hype, and how it differs from reality on the ground. It is a fascinating, engaging read about a region that receives too little coverage and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning more about the geopolitical realities of the North Caucasus." -

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like a sword cutting through the Gordian Knot 19. Dezember 2010
Von R. Bunn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was a bit skeptical at first - after all, another book on Chechnya, what else is there to say? Wow, was I wrong. This book is not another re-hashing of the events or even a solid military analysis of battles and tactics, this book is a re-conceptualization of the entire conflict - a re-conceptualization that should have been done long ago. Perhaps it requires a certain amount of time and distance to pass before a conflict can be seen for what it really is; perhaps it takes a counterinsurgency expert to drill down to the bottom of a conflict and lay it all out for us before we can really see what's going on. Regardless, that's exactly what this book does. There is clarity here - and if ever there was a conflict that needed clarity -- needed a sword to cut through the Kavkaskii Uzel (Caucasian Knot) -- it's the insurgency in the Caucasus. Schaefer is able to achieve this clarity because, as he states from the beginning, he uses an "amoral" approach to the analysis. He's not interested in the "right" or "wrong" of a particular action as much as he is interested in showing how that action (insurgent, terrorist, police, military or political) either feeds the fire or helps to make the area more secure. Every serious student of Russia, the Caucasus, or counterinsurgency should read this book. Moreover, we would all be served best if the journalists covering the conflict read this book before making pronouncements or deciding how to report a story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Meticulous and Illuminating! 21. Dezember 2010
Von Jennifer Hunt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Beginning this book as a complete novice on the subject, I now feel as though I have completed a graduate seminar on insurgency in Chechnya and the North Caucasus. Author Robert W. Schaefer meticulously examines and explains a problematic historical conflict in a little understood region. I appreciate that what is typically a difficult topic is painstakingly elucidated through the lens of an expert. Schaefer's study delivers the breadth and substance of a doctoral dissertation, with a refreshingly accessible structure and tone. The book's comprehensive framework and historical context are bolstered by the author's first-hand experience. Simply illuminating!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A phenomenally well-informed book. 16. Dezember 2010
Von B. O'Connor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In writing this book, LTC Robert Schaefer continues his legacy of service. I have recently completed my second reading of "The Insurgency in Chechnya and the North Caucasus: From Gazavat to Jihad," and I may seriously consider going through it a third time. The multiple readings were necessary because this book is so full of information and insight. I have read other books on the lingering situation in the North Caucasus; however, nothing I have previously read approaches the historical information provided in this book. The transition from the provision of an objective history of the region and the historically-shaped perspective on the current situation is seamless. In fact, the objectivity with which LTC Schaefer wrote this book may also be one of its strongest points. His ability to divorce himself from a nation-centric perspective while analyzing this conflict makes this book nearly unique amongst its peers. However, at no time does the book have the hollow ring of an overly academic text--the author's experiences are reflected throughout. Perhaps out of subjective bias, I was most impressed with the portions pertaining to internationally-recognized laws of conflict and rules of engagement. I would recommend this book to any serious student of modern conflict, counterinsurgency, or anyone who has a strong interest in the region. Be forewarned, however, this is neither light nor brief reading; it is a serious text overflowing with information and lessons for anyone who is interested in the subject matter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book to understand the conflict in North Caucasus 19. Dezember 2010
Von joy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I picked up this book to gain a deeper understanding about the complexity of US relationships and foreign policy in relation to Russia and the Middle Eastern countries such as Afghanistan, as well as satisfy my curiosity about covert operations. Reading this book was helpful in achieving both of these goals for me, and more. I absolutely love the way it is written and am engaged in every chapter. There is in-depth research, thought-provoking analysis, and respect for the reader.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Schaefer's Tour de Force 4. Januar 2011
Von C. E. Pelletier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
An amazing first-hand tell-all. I started this book with little to no knowledge of the Insurgency in Chechnya and the North Caucasus, and finished well-versed. I highly recommend this book. A+
