    1. An amazing book on the past couple centuries of Chechen history. This covers the trials of the Chechen people, discusses the Russian imperialist attitude, Putin's rise to power, and lastly the Marathon bombings. This book dispels a lot of misinformation that the media has reported especially where it pertains to Chechen fighters. A must read for anyone who would like a better insight into the Chechen people, and a brief look into what can make a terrorist.
