Review Let Our Fame Be Great Journeys Among the Defiant People of the Caucasus

Download Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free À Oliver Bullough Oliver Bullough À 2 Read Review Let Our Fame Be Great Journeys Among the Defiant People of the Caucasus Two centuries ago the Russians pushed out of the cold north towards the Caucasus Mountains the range that blocke. After reading the novel A Constellation of Vital Phenomena a month or so ago which is about the wars Russia brutally and relentlessly waged against the people of Chechnya I realised how little in fact nothing that I knew about this region Sitting here in the southernmost regions of the world on an island surrounded by water I have no comprehension at all of being surrounded by other countriesnationsstates The closest I get to all that is my neighbours I felt after reading that novel in light of Russia hosting the Winter Olympics in Sochi and in the recent goings on in UkraineCrimea that it would be very useful to know a little about yet another hot spot in our world I was reading some reviews for this book and was reminded that those who set off bombs at last year s Boston Marathon were also from Chechnya Were my eyes opened in my reading of this book Chechnya and Sochi are probably the only two places many people have heard of in this region of Europe They are in the area of land known as the Caucasus Mountains which is a mountainous range part of Russia separating the Black Sea from the Caspian Sea and by its rugged topography effectively separating Russia from the countries south of the Caucasus amongst others Turkey This area of mountains has been fought over endlessly for hundreds of years between Russia Turkey and amongst the numerous and very diverse ethnic groups that inhabit these mountains There is nothing pretty at all about any of it Nothing And it is likely to always be thus Oliver Bullough is a Welsh journalist who has developed a passionate interest in making sure that the many voices of the peoples of these regions are heard From 1999 to 2006 he lived and worked in Russia for magazines newspapers and finally for Reuters He saw first hand the ruthless efficiency with which the Russians dealt to the Chechens who were fighting for independence from Russia He makes no apologies for the behaviour of the Chechens in their hostage taking tragedies of the Moscow movie theatre in 2002 and the Beslan school siege of 2004 but he does attempt to inform the reader as to the history of the whole region the attempts by the Russians over the past centuries to control and wipe out by massacre or deportation whole populations and ethnic groups The Black Sea resort of Sochi for example is the site of the wholesale massacre of the Circassion population in the mid nineteenth century or Stalin s wholesale evacuation of thousands and thousands of Karachais Balkars Chechens and Ingush to the desolate lands of Kazakhstan Just to mention a fewBullough delves deep into historical material manuscripts he has travelled extensively through the area speaking to those who were deported in the 1930s those who were children and now elderly who survived the massacres and complete wiping out of their villages those who have been victims of the wars of the last twenty or so years those who are now economic refugees in Poland and Austria This is a huge book part travelogue part history lesson part current events It is incredibly interesting easy to read and short of going there if you dare will give you knowledge and understanding of the land and the peoples than you could wish for None of it is pretty Putin is no different really from his appalling predecessors at suppressing resistance and with the latest trouble in Ukraine the future looks pretty hopeless for those who continue to live there and defy Russia This is pretty depressing of course but only makes it that much important that we read and learn about these areas before they disappear forever

If everyone were to read this book the genocides of the Caucasus would ve been recognised since its publication The book covers the genocides that happened in the Caucasus with focus on the wars in Chechnya makes sense since they are recent and the author was alive and a reporter then and written scripts of interviews with the peoples living in diaspora Very convenient to those who are not of Caucasian people of the Caucasus decent as they get to know about the history and nature of the areas But not uite enough for those of Caucasian ethnicity as we are living in diaspora so we know how it is exactly to be so far from a homeland that s no longer yours I would have like to know about the history of my homeland and how my people who are still living there see life as Russians and not of their nationality
