This book explores the Russia-Georgia Conflict in South Ossetia, as well as Russia's political, economic and security issues and its implications for U.S. interests. Washington and Moscow have found some common ground on the Iranian and North Korean nuclear concerns, but tension is rising on other issues such as NATO enlargement, Kosovo, and proposed U.S. missile defences in Eastern Europe. Georgia's efforts to democraticise and bolster its free market economy are also examined, and U.S. policy and assistance are discussed. Included is an analysis on the campaign and results of Georgia's January 5th 2009 presidential election.
Basic facts and biographical information are also provided.
