This chapter considers Kosovo and Chechnya as examples of contemporary conflict. It examines the history, geopolitics, trends and features of Kosovo and Chechnya that helped write the character of violence in those regions. It then looks at an analysis that uses the account of storied identity, cultural narratives and founding events discussed in Chapter 1. It then locates Kosova and Ichkeria within a broader historically conditioned narrative space.
