Junge, Marc/ Bonwetsch, Bernd (Hg.): Bolschewistische Ordnung in Georgien. Der Große Terror in einer kleinen kaukasischen Republik (= Veröffentlichungen des Deutschen Historischen Instituts Moskau, Band 6). (De Gruyter, 2015)

Weist der Große Terror in der multiethnischen Republik Georgien genozidale oder ethnische Tendenzen auf? Dieser Frage widmet sich das vorliegende Buch. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Regionen der ehemaligen Sowjetunion können am Beispiel Georgiens der Kern des Großen Terrors - die drei Massenoperationen - parallel betrachtet werden. So können gewohnte Denk- und Interpretationsmuster der Verfolgungskampagne des Großen Terrors durchbrochen werden.

Agadjanian, Alex/ Jödicke, Ansgar/ van der Zweerd, Evert (Hg.): Religion, Nation and Democracy in the South Caucasus. (Routledge, 2015) (auf Englisch)

This book explores developments in the three major societies of the South Caucasus – Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia – focusing especially on religion, historical traditions, national consciousness, and political culture, and on how these factors interact. It outlines how, despite close geographical interlacement, common historical memories and inherited structures, the three countries have deep differences; and it discusses how development in all three nations has differed significantly from the countries’ declared commitments to democratic orientation and European norms and values. The book also considers how external factors and international relations continue to impact on the three countries.

Wooden, Amanda E./ Stefes, Christoph H. (Hg.): The Politics of Transition in Central Asia and the Caucasus: Enduring Legacies and Emerging Challenges. (Routledge, 2014) (auf Englisch)

Most books on the Caucasus and Central Asia are country-by-country studies. This book, on the other hand, fills a gap in Central Eurasian studies as one of the few comparative case study books on Central Eurasia, covering both the Caucasus and Central Asia; it considers key themes right across the two regions highlighting both political change and continuity. Comparative case study chapters, written by regional experts from a variety of methodological backgrounds, provide historical context, and evaluate Soviet political legacies and emerging policy outcomes. Key topics include the varied types and sources of authoritarianism; political opposition and protest politics; predetermined outcomes of post-Soviet economic choices; social and stability impacts of natural resource wealth; variations in educational reform; international norm influence on gender policy and the power of human rights activists. Overall, the book provides a thorough, up-to-date overview of what is increasingly becoming a significant area of concern.

Kemoklidze, Nino/ Moore, Cerwyn/ Smith, Jeremy/ Yemelianova, Galina (Hg.): Many Faces of the Caucasus. (Routledge, 2014) (auf Englisch)

This volume offers contributions from researchers working within a range of disciplines, including history, social anthropology, 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 civilizational 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.

Kambeck, Michael/ Ghazaryan, Sargis (Hg.): Europe's Next Avoidable War: Nagorno-Karabakh. (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) (auf Englisch)

Nagorno-Karabakh is the most perilous of the so-called frozen conflicts in Eastern Europe. Whilst the war in Georgia in 2008 shocked the world, there are striking similarities between the pre-war situation there and the recently aggravated situation concerning Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia and Azerbaijan. In an area almost free of observers, the implications of a new war in Nagorno-Karabakh are largely underestimated. This book sheds light on the current situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, how it evolved and likely scenarios, taking into account the changed landscape including the EU's new foreign policy instruments. Kambeck and Ghazaryan suggest concrete policy proposals in order to make war a less likely outcome.

Gvosdev, Nikolas K.: Imperial Policies and Perspectives towards Georgia, 1760-1819. (Palgrave Macmillan, 2000) (auf Englisch)

This volume examines how the Russian Empire expanded across the barrier of the Caucasus mountains to take control of the Georgian lands at the close of the 18th century.

Particular attention is paid to the role of two significant individuals--Princes Potemkin and Tsitsianov--in pushing the Empire towards total incorporation.
