17/7/2007 Book by Thomas Holtz about current Caucasian conflicts presented in Georgia
Presentation of the book written by American journalist Thomas Holtz was held in the capital of Georgia. The title of the book is "Georgian Diary. Chronicle of Wars and Political Chaos in Post-Soviet Caucasus" (2006), and it is the final part of the Caucasian trilogy, which comprises, apart of the "Georgian Diary," the "Azerbaijani Diary" (1998) and the "Chechen Diary" (2003). So far, the "Georgian Diary" has been published in English, although the author would be glad to see his book also in the Georgian language.
"The publishers have named my books the diaries, because they are based on my personal impressions. My work is, so to say, on modern history, the history borrowed from the streets. However, I feel my responsibility for the information that I give out," Thomas Holtz said to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Thomas Holtz worked and lived in the Caucasus from 1991 to 2005.
