Thoughts on the Boston Bombings

I have a lot of things swirling in my head about the events in Boston this past week, and I’m trying to get them organized and down on paper. I realized I haven’t been blogging recently (I have other things in the works), but with the revelation earlier today that the two bombers were Chechen, it’s even more imperative that I make myself heard. Though I am an expert in Islamic history, I particularly study Islam in Russia and the former Soviet Union, and I hope to provide some desperately needed perspective and context to the inevitable debate about these events.

Short version: I’m going to writing a lot in the next few days. Starting later tonight.
