Bird does a good job in presenting the plight of the Chechen people, whose current story (let alone history) is little known outside Russia, save occasional headlines here and there. I confess I ended up skimming towards the end for the last couple of chapters (the Chechen story is rather grim and doesn't get better), but can recommend the book as an engaging, first-hand, objective account.
