Annotation: The author of the acclaimed Azerbaijan Diary and Chechnya Diary now recounts his experiences in the strife–ridden Republic of Georgia. Soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Republic of Georgia fell prey to a series of power struggles, rampant crime and corruption, secessionist wars, and the spillover of the war in neighboring Chechenya. Journalist Goltz traces these developments with the same kind of vivid, personal narrative that made his previous books so compelling. This fastpaced, firstperson account is filled with fascinating details about the ongoing struggles of this littleknown region of the former Soviet Union. Featuring memorable portraits of individuals in high places and low, it traces the story from 1992 through the Rose Revolution, the resignation of Eduard Shevardnadze, and the new presidency of U.S.–educated Mikhail Saakashvili.
