This sourcebook deals with the history, people, diaspora, traditions, arts, language, literature, and media of the Georgians. In addition to the regular chapters, special boxes focus on subjects such as folklore and major festivals, the supra ('feast') and the tamada ('toastmaster'), the conversion of Georgia to Christianity by St Nino, the artist Niko Pirosmani, the bard Shota Rustaveli and his epic Vepkhistqaosani (The Knight in the Panther Skin), and Stalin. Rounding off this wealth of detailed information are more than 100 b/w photographs, illustrations and maps, a list of proverbs, suggestions for further reading, a chronology of historical events, and a discography.

– 224 pages with over 100 illustrations & maps
