This major review essay is an adapted and enlarged version of my review published in the peer-reviewed journal Terrorism and Political Violence (2021); this essay here includes additional observations and source references, including some of my own publications. My major article on ‘Chechen Clans and Other Kin Groups in Times of War and Peace’ in the Winter 2020 issue of our journal already contains some of my observations on several of Souleimanov’s and Aliyev’s works discussed much more elaborately in this review essay here.
