A promising new book by Andrew Andersen, author of “Abkhazia and Sochi: The Roots of the Conflict 1918-1921”.
The short lived period of independence of Georgia in the aftermath of the collapse of the Russian Empire is a somewhat forgotten and ignored era in Georgia’s modern history. This turbulent period which ended with the Soviet invasion in 1921 and the full incorporation in the newly established Soviet Union has shaped Georgia’s modern borders through a string of international treaties.
The book is illustrated with many maps, a few samples of which can be found on the author’s page linked above. Below a few previous maps of the author, published earlier online, showing some of the changes of Georgia’s claimed, de facto and recognized territory over the years 1918-1921.
