ULM professor published in Joint Force Quarterly
University of Louisiana at Monroe’s John W. Sutherlin, associate professor of political science, recently published a book review for the “Joint Force Quarterly” (JFQ) on “The Insurgency in Chechnya and the North Caucasus: From Gazavat to Jihad” by Robert W. Schaefer.
JFQ is the chairman's joint military and security studies journal, which publishes research at National Defense University in support of the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Sutherlin’s review is a part of his continuing effort to conduct research with the JFQ on matters of terrorism and counterinsurgencies.
According to Sutherlin, “The work showed the paradoxical world of insurgencies and counterinsurgencies using a real case study and interviews with people from all sides, and is better than anything I have encountered lately...in terms of analyzing the North Caucasus region, there may be nothing as useful.”
The article is available in print or online at
Sutherlin earned a B.A. from Louisiana Tech University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of New Orleans. He has taught at ULM for over six years.
