Show Summary Details


This chapter introduces the themes of criminality and criminalisation. It first studies the various Chechnya groups from 1996 to early 1998, and then examines the evolving dynamics of Russian law enforcement and the combination of Russian law enforcement organisations that are involved in the second conflict that occurred in 1999. It also discusses the emergence of the KLA from the 1980s to the 1990s, the issue of multiple allegiances, and the bridging of the earlier work on stories of war and peace.
