Please Don't Call it Soviet Georgia: A Journey Through a Troubled Paradise
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)
