The Caucasus: An Introduction
De Waal begins with a historical overview, then focuses his attention on recent history, and in particular, on the three conflicts over Nagorny Karabakh, South Ossetia, and Abkhazia. De Waal analyses the energy politics of the region, the "Five-Day War" between Georgia and Russia and recent political changes in all three countries. In addition, the book features brief snapshots of fascinating side topics such as Georgian wine, Baku jazz, and how the coast of Abkhazia came to be known as "Soviet Florida." Short, stimulating and rich in detail, The Caucasus is the perfect guide to this fascinating and little understood region.
