Editorial Reviews

Review

This well-researched, original volume is one of the very few scholarly books in English about the internal dynamics of Abkhazia. Highly recommended.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

Review

Apart from presenting ethno-political processes from a historic perspective, Under Siege discusses popular attitudes to Abkhazia's political status and explains the establishment of rule in which the ethnic Abkhaz occupy a privileged position in society. The volume also reviews the legislative provisions of the de facto state and analyzes the institutional and administrative framework for governance of minorities in the state entity. Finally, it suggests ways to resolve the ethno-political knot in this troubled Caucasus region. A groundbreaking study, Under Siege derives its strength from painstaking research conducted among diverse communities. It makes every effort not to accept the historical and ethnopolitical narratives propagated by the Georgian and Abkhazian sides and achieves a remarkable objectivity.

(Jonathan Wheatley, regional director of the Centre for Democracy in Aarau (Switzerland), author of Georgia from National Awakening to Rose Revolution: Delayed Transition in the Former Soviet Union)
