Opis produktu:

• Personal interviews with the women fighting the Chechnyan Jihad

In this comprehensive portrait of the women of Chechnya in modern war, Paul Murphy challenges conventional thinking on why they fight and are willing to kill themselves in the name of Allah. His book covers the two wars with Russia in 1994 and 1999 and the present conflict with Islamic Jihadists. It argues that these wars forced Chechnyan women to venture far beyond their traditional roles and advance their human rights but that the current movement championing traditional Islam is taking those rights away.

Drawing on personal interviews, insider resources, and other materials, Murphy presents powerful portrayals of women who fight in the Chechnyan Jihad, including snipers, suicide bombers and the mysterious “Black Widows,” as well as women who collect intelligence, hide arms and perform other non-combatant roles.

Paul J. Murphy, is a former senior intelligence and U.S. counter-terrorism official, and has worked on counter-terrorism cooperation projects with the Russian parliament. The author of four other books, he is currently the Director of Russia-Eurasia Terror Watch and lives in New Market, VA.
