The essential introduction to modern Georgia's history and culture, now fully updated for researchers and armchair travelers alike.

Georgia has been called the world's most beautiful country, yet only little is known about it beyond its borders. This topical and vital book by the "ideal chronicler" (Literary Review) Peter Nasmyth is the perfect and much-celebrated introduction to its remarkable people, landscape, and culture.

Over its 3,000-year-old history, Georgia has been ruled by everyone from the Greeks to the Ottomans, became a coveted part of the Russian Empire for a hundred years, and was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1921. In twenty-five years, Georgia has undergone a dramatic socioeconomical and political transformation, and although its political situation remains precarious, Georgia's strong sense of nationhood has reinvigorated the country.

Vivid and comprehensive, Nasmyth's Georgia: In the Mountains of Poetry is a unique eyewitness account of Georgia's rebirth and creates an unforgettable portrait of its remarkable landscape, history, people and culture. Based on personal experience and offering fascinating insights into the life of ordinary and high profile Georgians, it is essential reading for anyone who does not yet know, or wants to know more, of this astonishing place.
