This is a great one-volume reference on Georgian history... (American Reference Books Annual, March 2008
Mikaberidze's (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia) single-volume reference illuminates the often tumultuous history of the country of Georgia through details on approximately 800 names, events, locations, and cultural phenomena from around 11,000 BCE to the present. The alphabetically arranged entries are cross-referenced and dated where appropriate. Front matter offers a brief history of the country, historical maps, and a timeline with to-the-day mention of recent political events. A separate glossary is included. This reference is intended as a first resort research aid. (Reference and Research Book News, August 2007
Dr. Mikaberidze's Historical Dictionary of Georgia
contains nearly 800 interdisciplinary entries on a variety of subjects from remote antiquity to the present. This remarkable achievement will surely become a standard reference not only for specialists of Georgia and Caucasia, but of the broader Russian, Soviet and post-Soviet, Middle Eastern, Black Sea and Inner Eurasian worlds. Highly recommended! (Professor Stephen H. Rapp, Georgia State University)
