Paul Manning – Once Upon a Time, There Was Sex in Georgia


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. Georgians have been particularly tantalized by images of the strange sexual practices of these mountains (called ts’ats’loba), which represent a kind of paradoxical “sex without sex,” a seeming inversion of normative Georgian sexuality, belonging at the same time to the most “Georgian” part of Georgia 전국무쌍 다운로드.

Robert P. Blake, Georgian Secular Literature: Epic, Romance, and Lyric (1100-1800)


Georgian secular literature is almost as untrodden a field as Georgian theological production during the Middle Ages. While rather more secular texts have been published, only one of these has come out in a critical edition 1 and a number of the most important documents have been handled in a manner that is lamentably inadequate. What has been written on the subject is widely scattered, veiled in recondite tongues, and most of the studies have been distorted by being seen through nationalist spectacles 크롬브라우저 다운로드.

Revaz Gachechiladze – The New Georgia: Space, Society, Politics

After the collapse of the socialist political system that had glued the Soviet Union together, two dozen nations re-emerged on the world stage 다운로드.

Composed by candlelight and typed during short intervals when electricity was available, the book begins with general geographical and historical background of this country, sitting precariously at the political crossroads of eastern Europe and western Asia 다운로드. Part I also includes sections on many aspects of social geography, including population and family dynamics, education, employment, class stratifications, housing, ethnicity, and religion 강남화타.

Part II analyzes the specific issues of a rapidly changing society, including the sudden transition to a market economy, regional variations in welfare, crime and drug abuse, urban-specific problems, and ethnic tensions 다운로드.
