The Caucasus is one of the most complicated regions in the world: with many different peoples and political units, differing religious allegiances, and frequent conflicts, and where historically major world powers have clashed with each other. Until now there has been no single book for those wishing to learn about this complex region. This book fills the gap, providing a clear, comprehensive introduction to the Caucasus, which is suitable for all readers. It covers the geography; the historical development of the region; economics; politics and government; population; religion and society; culture and traditions; alongside its conflicts and international relations. Written throughout in an accessible style, it requires no prior knowledge of the Caucasus. The book will be invaluable for those researching specific issues, as well as for readers needing a thorough introduction to the region.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Coene provides a vast amount of information on a range ofissues and his book may be a useful reference point for those wishing to know more about the region... The Caucasus is a useful introduction to the region." - Liam O'Shea (2011) 'Reviews', Europe-Asia Studies, 63: 2, 351-353

"The readers get aware of the main facts, names and dates. Coene managed a quite difficult task to author a neutral narrative on all above-mentioned conflicts and wars. A chapter on Suggested reading at the end of the book is of assistance for anyone willing to obtain more information and more profound knowledge about the Caucasus. The Routledge-published monograph of Coene on the Caucasus is a well-written overview of the important geopolitical space between present-day Russia, Turkey and Iran." - Zaur Gasimov, Jahrbucher fur Geschichte Osteuropas
