Contemporary Violence

This chapter outlines the path to war in the Caucasus and the Balkans. It studies the social networks that gave information to the armed resistance movements in Kosovo and Chechnya. It then studies the 1998 battle of Gudermes in Chechnya in and the 1999 incursion into Dagestan, which shows the ways the former nationalist-separatist movement split. It also studies the first few months of the second war of the 1990s using a more localised perspective and the formation of the Kosovan armed resistance movement. Finally, it studies the two armed resistance movements as examples of social networks.

Keywords:   social networks, armed resistance, battle of Gudermes, Dagestan incursion, nationalist-separatist movement
