summary Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Oliver Bullough Let Our Fame Be Great Journeys Among the Defiant People of the Caucasus review Ý 3 Oliver Bullough ☆ 3 free read Ould never be the same again This title features author's journeys who intended to hear the stories of the conue. I first saw this book in a hostel in Tbilisi and after skimming through it I decided to pick it up once I got home First of all I would recommend you will enjoy this book a lot if you have prior interest in RussianSoviet history and the Caucasus Otherwise things may be a bit difficult to followThat being said Let Our Fame Be Great is an expertly researched compelling chronicle of the struggles of a people that has so often been written off as a side show from events reaching from the Crimean War to the War on Terror I initially expected it to be of an ethnography of the different groups living in the region and while these aspects are slightly touched on this book focuses on the bloody relationship they have shared with Russian imperialism since the time of Catherine the Great The sources Bullough utilizes are both extensive and impressive and his knowledge of Russian gives him access to primary sources including Pushkin s poetry old KGB files and interviews with members of the Circassian diaspora in Israel which really allows this book to shine Let Our Fame Be Great is fairly dark The stories of the Circassians and the Mountain Turks share similarities of the cruelties inflicted upon Native Americans with the themes of one sided conflicts and forced relocation repeating themselves time and time again Things grow even bleak in the chapters detailing the experiences of the Chechens Bullough does a fantastic job of cultivating understanding for a group of people that have been simply written off as terrorists from a backward part of the world If you re considering reading this book you re probably aware that there s to Chechnya than that and this book does a great job at explaining how this rebranding has been allowed to occur In sum it s a grim necessary read
