Note

As Georgia disentangled itself from the Soviet Union, divisive nationalist doctrines pitted minorities against titulars and laid the seeds for ethnic conflicts that tore the state apart. The pyrrhic independence attained under Zviad Gamsakhurdia’s chauvinistic leadership left a toxic legacy for his successors, from Eduard Shevardnadze to Mikheil Saakashvili and onwards.This chapter traces their attempts to redefine Georgian-ness in a more inclusive direction, and the minorities’ reactions to this – sometimes half-hearted and often controversial – process. Has Georgia’s state motto, Strength in Unity, evolved from wishful thinking into a statement of fact?
