Overview

With the Rose Revolution, the Georgian people have spoken, demanding that government be taken from the corrupt and darkened inner corridors of power and given back to them. But from the moment of its independence, Georgia has faced profound threats to its national security, beginning with the eroded base for the state itself, and the task of overcoming these dangers now passes to the leaders of the Rose Revolution. This is the first book to explore the deep and complex security challenges facing Georgia before and after the dramatic revolution of November 2003. It brings together Georgian and non-Georgian authors who look at the many different sides of the challenges Georgia faces-from territorial conflicts within the country to tensions beyond Georgia's borders, including the long, troubled relationship with Russia.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"Balanced, insightful, and authoritative -- this examination of a strategically important nation at a crucial moment in its emergence as an independent democracy could hardly be timelier. Georgia's attainment of stability,
security, and successful statehood matters not just to its own people but to its neighbors (including Russia), and to the entire international community. This book explains why and elucidates the complexities of the challenge."--Strobe Talbott,
President, Brookings Institution
