Svante Cornell – Small Nations and Great Powers

The book introduces the geographical, historical and ethno-linguistic framework of the Caucasus, focusing on the Russian incorporation of the region, the root most conflicts. The author analyses individual conflicts, from their origins to the attempts at resolving them; evaluates the role of the three regional powers (Turkey, Iran and Russia); and sets out a synthesis of the Caucasian conflicts and a conclusion on the place of the Caucasus in world affairs.
