Publisher Description

Introduction: Georgia's Rulers: Saints or Sinners? Beginning in late 2008, strange new structures suddenly started mushrooming out of the plains west of Tbilisi, Georgia's capital. Day and night, in sunshine and under floodlights, construction workers labored around the clock to build row after row of identical-looking small houses at breakneck speed. Within a few months, over a dozen new settlements had appeared in the landscape, new homes for people displaced by the Georgian-Russian fighting over the disputed separatist territory of South Ossetia just months earlier. Of the over 100,000 Georgians who fled their homes during the Russia-Georgia war of August 2008, most were able to return before the onset of winter. Over half of the remaining long-term displaced, around 18,000 people, have now been moved into 15 "mushroom villages". (1)
