One of the more curious side effects of the “branding” of localities in the War on Terror was the production of certain kinds of fantastic places, such that certain otherwise unremarkable places came to be diagnosed as “Terror bases.” This chapter explores a curious dual apperception of this place within two “folkloric” discourses.

Georgians have long found in the remote mountainous regions of Georgia, Pshavi and Khevsureti, a fragmentary ethnographic image of a romantic and exotic “once upon a time” version of Georgia 다운로드.
