              Many Faces of the Caucasus

              Studies of the Caucasus in the West have been dominated by issues of security and ethnic conflict based on Eurocentric theoretical paradigms. By contrast, this volume offers contributions from researchers working within a range of disciplines, including history, social anthropolo...gy, sociology and cultural studies as well as international relations and security studies. Some of the contributions demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the region from `inside', while others explore the issues within a wider Eurasian and global perspective. The volume examines the politically-defined division of the region into the North and South Caucasus, the evolution of national identity and citizenship, and the role of the NGOs in the development of civil society in the post-Soviet period. Its content demonstrates the advantages of an area studies inter-disciplinary approach to the study of the region and the importance of collaboration between Western and local researchers. It highlights the importance of the Caucasus as a geographical, political and civilisational entity and examines the historical, cultural, political, religious and psychological factors behind the region's particular susceptibility to territorial and ethno-religious conflict. The book will be of benefit to scholars and students researching the Caucasus, Russia and the post-Soviet space. It will also appeal to policy-makers, NGO activists, journalists and a wider audience interested in this fascinating region. This book was published as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies.

              Georgia after Stalin: Nationalism and Soviet power (Hardback)

              This book explores events in Georgia in the years following Stalin's death in March 1953, especially the demonstrations of March 1956 and their brutal suppression, in order to illuminate the tensions in Georgia between veneration of the memory of Stalin, a Georgian, together with... the associated respect for the Soviet system that he had created, and growing nationalism. The book considers how not just Stalin but also his wider circle of Georgians were at the heart of the Soviet system, outlines how greatly Stalin was revered in Georgia, and charts the rise of Khrushchev and his denunciation of Stalin. It goes on to examine the different strands of the rising Georgian nationalist movements, discusses the repressive measures taken against demonstrators, and concludes by showing how the repressions transformed a situation where Georgian nationalism, the honouring of Stalin's memory and the Soviet system were all aligned together into a situation where an increasingly assertive nationalist movement was firmly at odds with the Soviet Union.

              The book brings together a wide range of experts involved in the study of the Caucasus, including journalists, academics and research fellows from a range of disciplines, as well as a new generation of scholars involved in studying the region. It highlights the importance of 'the... Caucasus' as a geographical, political and civilisational entity and explains why it is important to study this region. It touches upon important issues such as the state of Caucasian Studies in the West and identifies its major shortcomings, including the prevalence of security studies and ethnic conflict-oriented theoretical paradigms, the weakness of inter-disciplinary area studies and the lack of engagement between Western and local scholars working on this region. Authors of each of the twelve contributing chapters of this collection view the Caucasus from both within and afar and apply a variety of theoretical perspectives to analyse different faces of this fascinating region. This book was published as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies.
