The present book is a modern edition of professor Kazemzadeh's published in 1951. The book covers the last stages of the First World War in the Southern Caucasus, the independence of Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan and they final collapse at the hands of the Russian Red Army (and the incompetence of their leaders, one may add after reading the book). The book then deals with a momentous era in the history of this part of the world.

Why do I rate it as a 3 star book only then? There are 3 main issues that prevented it from meeting my, admittedly, very high expectations:

-The edition itself is terrible. Though we must thank the Anglo Caspian Press for reprinting the book, they could have taking the trouble of doing so properly. I have never examined the original edition but I can state in all fairness this one could hardly have any more a typographical error. They are literally in their hundreds, which makes the reading of the book difficult , sometimes even giving some sentences several meanings. It could be a problem inherited from the old edition, but it looks more like a problem scanning the old one or something of the sort.

-The author is probably an expert on the area dealt with in the book but, from my point of view, he is no writer. The writing style is dull and flat.

-The book sometimes lacks a firm basis. I had the feeling now and then the author takes a partisan statement at face value, a very dangerous attitude in this regions thriving with rabid nationalism... Not that the author takes sides in the many conflicts included in the book, but sometimes he bases his narrative on a declaration made by one (very interested) side only...
