With the region of the Caucasus with its ongoing, and even deteriorating, crisis and instability and its strategic and economic importance increasingly at the front of the world's attention, this volume presents and discusses some of the complexities and problems arising in the region such as Islamic terrorists and al-Qaida.

Scholars from different disciplines who specialise in the Caucasus analyze key topics such as:

discussions of grass root perceptionsthe influence of informal power structures on ethnic conflicts in the CaucasusRussian policies towards Islam and their destabilising influence the influence of Islamic revival on the legal and social situationsnationalism and the revival of pre- and sub-national identitiesshifts in identity as reflected in demography reasons for the Chechen victory in the first Chechen warthe involvement of Islamic volunteers in Chechnya.

With the situation in Chechnia likely to spread across the entire North Caucasus, this cutting edge work will be of great value in the near future and will interest political scientists and regional experts of Russia, Central Asia, Caucasus, Middle East and Turkey, as well as NGOs, government agencies and think tanks.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'...the volume provides good insight into the political processes since the 1990s, and especially into the growing Islamization of initially secular ethnic movements and the states' failure to react adequately.' - Michael Kemper, Amsterdam

"The collection is well structured and organized...The book is well produced, with seven maps and no fewer than eighteen tables...contributions are both accurately and copiously referenced, there is a comprehensive Index and a generally good standard of translation of those articles written by non-native English speakers...I think that this volume deserves a place in the library of any individual or institution wishing to learn more about one of the least understood regions of contemporary Europe." - John Russell, Slavonic and East European Review (vol. 89, no. 1, January 2011).
