About the Author

Stephen F. Jones is Professor of Russian and Eurasian Studies, Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts, USA


'Stephen Jones has brought together a collection of informative and perspicacious essays which restore to history a forgotten episode, one of the most extraordinary, if doomed political experiments of the twentieth century: the Georgian Democratic Republic of 1919-21. More important still, this book gives us a salutary reminder: the failure of the victorious allies of 1919 to support, recognize and save from Russian conquest a remarkable young republic must not be repeated by the victorious allies of the Cold War a century later, when a newly independent Georgia faces subversion and coercion from a revived Russian empire.' - Donald Rayfield, Emeritus Professor, Queen Mary, University of London 'Georgia, and the whole of the Caucasus, is geopolitically an extremely complicated region. The Making of Modern Georgia, 1918-2012: The First Georgian Republic and its Successors is a unique book that gives the reader the possibility of comparing two models of the post-imperial Georgian state - 1918-1921 and 1991-2012. The book will be of enormous relevance and importance to all those interested not only in the history and geopolitics of Georgia, but of the Caucasus as well.' - Vladimer Papava, Professor of Economics, Rector, Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Georgia 'The Making of Modern Georgia, 1918-2012 is an essential guide to one of eastern Europe's most fascinating and strategically significant countries. Stephen Jones has assembled a who's-who of specialists on Georgian politics, economics, and history. This international team traces the country's fractious politics and fraught foreign policy back to the Democratic Republic of Georgia (1918-1921) and reveals the enduring legacies of Georgians' first modern experiment with national self-government.' - Charles King, Georgetown University, USA, author of The Ghost of Freedom: A History of the Caucasus
