Summary "After the dissolution of the Soviet Empire, some regions turned violent while others did not. Examining five key areas - Chechnya, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Dagestan - Christoph Zurcher offers an understanding of the origin and nature of the violence in these regions, the response and suppression from the post-Soviet regime, and the resulting outcomes." "The book provides a brief history of the region, particularly the collapse of the Soviet Union and the dramatic changes that took place in the wake of this toppling. Zurcher carefully looks at the conditions within each region - economic, ethnic, religious, and political - as well as the institutions, social customs, and community networks that led to the outbreak of war in some regions and the keeping of peace in others."--BOOK JACKET.
