"Uncertain Democracy is a skillful, original account of highly important political events, with many implications for U.S. foreign policy. Lincoln Mitchell nicely fuses his insider's perspective with an outsider's balance."—Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
"Proponents and critics of democracy promotion have cherry-picked Georgia's 'Rose Revolution' to find what they want to see. In Uncertain Democracy, Lincoln Mitchell provides a full portrait of the events that began the first color revolution and shows the gap between rhetoric and reality. Based on his assessment of what has and has not worked in postrevolution Georgia, he shows how the objective of constructing democracies in other countries can be integrated into U.S. foreign policy."—Nikolas Gvosdev, editor, The National Interest
"Essential reading."—Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia
"Mitchell has a keen understanding of Georgian politics, the country's major actors, and the broader regional and historical context in which Georgian politics takes place. This book is particularly valuable because of its discussion of the role of the United States and the West more broadly in democratic development. Although some may not agree with Mitchell's conclusions, Uncertain Democracy is essential reading for understanding Georgia, the former Soviet Union, and democratic transitions more generally."—Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia
