Críticas:

"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 "Scrupulously researched." - The National Interest "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?" - 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." - E-International Relations

Reseña del editor:

The Insurgency in Chechnya and the North Caucasus: From Gazavat to Jihad is an comprehensive treatment of this 300 year-old conflict. Thematically organized, it cuts through the rhetoric to provide a contextual framework with which readers can truly understand the "why" and "hoW" of one of the world's longest-running contemporary insurgencies, despite Russia's best efforts to eradicate it. A fascinating case study of a counterinsurgency campaign that is in direct contravention of U.S. and Western strategy, the book also examines the differences and linkages between insurgency and terrorism; the origins of conflict in the North Caucasus; and the influences of different strains of Islam, of al-Qaida, and of the War on Terror. A critical examination of never-before-revealed Russian counterinsurgency (COIN) campaigns explains why those campaigns have consistently failed and why the region has seen such an upswing in violence since the conflict was officially declared "over" less than two years ago.
