November 11, 2010

As with Black Garden, de Waal’s magnum opus on the Karabagh issue, The Caucasus is not going to please everybody.

The presentation is balanced and comprehensive, offering a well-rounded overview and some insights into the details of the histories of Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan, including their territorial disputes, which remain unresolved. The book focuses more on the post-Soviet histories of the countries and, in particular, the changes in Azerbaijan and Georgia, including energy politics, the Rose Revolution, as well as the August 2008 war with Russia.
