In 2013, the United States suffered its worst terrorist bombing since 9/11 at the annual running of the Boston Marathon. When the culprits turned out to be U.S. residents of Chechen descent, Americans were shocked and confused. Why would members of an obscure Russian minority group consider America their enemy? Inferno in Chechnya is the first book to answer this riddle by tracing the roots of the Boston attack to the Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia. Brian Glyn Williams describes the tragic history of the bombers' war-devastated homeland-including tsarist conquest and two bloody wars with post-Soviet Russia that would lead to the rise of Vladimir Putin-showing how the conflict there influenced the rise of Europe's deadliest homegrown terrorist network. He provides a historical account of the Chechens' terror campaign in Russia, documents their growing links to Al Qaeda and radical Islam, and describes the plight of the Chechen diaspora that ultimately sent two Chechens to Boston. Inferno in Chechnya delivers a fascinating and deeply tragic story that has much to say about the historical and ethnic roots of modern terrorism.

Massively outnumbered and outgunned by the Russian military, the story of the Chechens' ability to hold and then humble them in the First Chechen War is an extraordinary one, hardly overshadowed by the Russians' capacity to learn from their mistakes in the Second. Through well-chosen case studies, this book explores the tactics of both sides and in the process becomes the best military study of this conflict yet." —Mark Galeotti, Professor of Global Affairs at the Center for Global Affairs at New York University "Fangs of the Lone Wolf sheds light on a poorly understood unconventional war and does so from a rare perspective, that of Chechens who fought against Russia from 1994 to 2009. Billingsley captures the voices of the Chechens from years of interviews conducted in Chechnya and in exile." —Mark von Hagen, Professor of History and Global Studies at Arizona State University "Dodge Billingsley saw the Chechen War from the inside. His insights into the extraordinary battle between one of the world's largest armies and the insurgents who fought it to a standstill are second to none." — Thomas de Waal, Russia and Eurasia Program Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and author A Small Victorious War "The author's unique insights, enabled by his close working relationship with the Chechens, makes for a technical but interesting read. His narrative is blunt, honest and balanced and he does not shy away from critical conclusions of the Chechen efforts where warranted.." — Canadian Army Journal “ ... presents a unique and effective study of the soldiers, terrain and tactics of the complex and largely undocumented Chechen wars ... essential reading for scholars of the region seeking deeper understanding of the combatants and their tactics, or for any interested reader trying to make sense of the seemingly endless conflict in Chechnya." —Russian Review

Neun Jahre alt war Polina Scherebzowa, als in Grosny Krieg ausbrach. In diesem Jahr, 1994, begann sie ihr Tagebuch, das sie zehn Jahre lang und über einen zweiten Konflikt hinaus führte. Es ist eine fesselnde Chronik vom Leben in Zeiten des Krieges, von der Schönheit und Grausamkeit des Daseins, die Polina stilistisch glänzend und mit der tiefen Lakonie eines Kindes, später einer jungen Frau beschreibt. Und mit ganz eigenem Blick: Polina ist Tochter einer Russin und eines Tschetschenen; sie wird von einer russischen Bombe verletzt, in der Schule beschimpft man sie dennoch als «Russenschwein». Zugleich bleibt Polina ein Kind, sucht Salamander, ärgert sich, weil sie das einzige verkleidete Rotkäppchen unter lauter Schneeflocken ist. Sie lernt, mit dem Schrecklichen umzugehen – den Angriffen und Anfeindungen; der kleinen tschetschenischen Kämpferin mit dem MG; dem verwundeten Soldaten, der ein Kind bittet, ihn zu erlösen. Währenddessen erlebt Polina den Alltag eines Teenagers, Streit mit der Mutter, die erste Liebe. Der düstere Hintergrund lässt die Poesie dieser Jugend nur umso stärker leuchten. Ein Dokument von großer Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden in schwieriger Zeit, ein berührendes, hochliterarisches Tagebuch – eine Entdeckung.

Moskau nach dem Zerfall der Sowjetunion: Die Oligarchen sichern sich die Pfründe und machen ein Vermögen. Der Amerikaner Bill Browder nutzt die Gunst der Stunde und investiert in aufstrebende Unternehmen. Doch dann kommt er Putin und seiner Politik in die Quere: Er wird erpresst, verfolgt und bedroht. In einem Rechtsstaat kann man sich dagegen wehren. Aber nicht in einem Russland, wo Willkür und Tyrannei herrschen. Browders Anwalt Sergej Magnitski wird unter fadenscheinigen Vorwänden inhaftiert, gefoltert und schließlich im Gefängnis erschlagen. Aber Bill Browder gibt nicht auf. Als Menschenrechtsaktivist macht er international Druck auf Putin. Eine wahre Geschichte – packend geschrieben wie ein Thriller.
