Abkhazia, Georgia, and the Crisis of August 2008: Roots and Lessons

This is an absolutely eye-opening MUST READ for anyone who professes to know what this issue is all about. It’s quite long, but well worth it if you want to be able to cut through the all rhetoric about “territorial integrity” and “occupation”. When you read this you will see the run-up to this conflict, and its aftermath, in a new light.

The author, George Hewitt, is Professor of Caucasian Languages at London University and has been a Fellow of the British Academy since 1997. Since 1989 he has written widely about the Georgian–Abkhazian conflict.
