Essential reading for understanding the collapse of the Soviet state. Russell was one of the few western writers permitted into Soviet Georgia during the recent upheaval, and she provides a vivid account of a people forced to suddenly confront their history and their hopes for a new state. ?A gem of a travel book, full of wry observation and earthy humour.??Oxford Times (UK)
