The North Caucasus remains a highly turbulent region that has been wracked by war and conflict for more than a decade. A seemingly unending cycle of violence has engulfed the region, as major surges of bombings and suicide attacks in a war once neatly confined to Chechnya have spread to the other neighboring republics. Instability is now ever-present in most of the republics that make up the North Caucasus as militant insurgencies simmer from the Caspian shores of Dagestan to the Circassian heartland in Russia's Black Sea provinces.

In Volatile Borderland leading experts on the North Caucasus provide an in-depth look at the key developments, movements, and personalities that have shaped the region since the start of the second Russo-Chechen war in 1999. The book is designed to be an important reference tool for Western policymakers who seek a better understanding of the key issues driving conflict and instability in Russia's restless frontier.

Contributors include Pavel Baev (Norwegian Peace Research Institute), Marie Bennigsen (former editor of Central Asian Survey and specialist on the North Caucasus), John B. Dunlop (Hoover Institution), Moshe Gammer (Tel Aviv University), Paul Goble (Audentes University, Tallinn and EuroCollege of the University of Tartu, Estonia), Glen E. Howard (Jamestown Foundation), Matthew A. Light (University of Massachusetts), Andrew McGregor (Aberfoyle International Security), Mikhail Roshchin (Institute of Oriental Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences), Abdurashid Saidov (Dagestanskaia Pravda), Murad Batal-al-Shishani (independent writer and researcher on Islamic movements in the North Caucasus and the Middle East), Andrei Smirnov (Jamestown Foundation), Fatima Tlisova (Regnum News Agency), and Mairbek Vachagaev (L'Ecole des Haute Etudes en Science Sociales, Paris).

Glen E. Howard, president of the Jamestown Foundation, is a regional expert on the Caucasus and Central Asia. He was formerly an analyst at the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) Strategic Assessment Center. His articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Central Asia-Caucasus Analyst, and Jane's Defense Weekly.
