Svante E. Cornell, Small Nations and Great Powers: A Study of Ethnopolitical Conflict in the Caucasus.
Richmond, England: Curzon Press, 2001, 480 pp. + maps

Small Nations and Great Powers is an ambitious work with a wide scope, covering all the ethnic conflicts that have devastated the Caucasus since the last days of the Soviet Union. The book is copiously annotated and its bibliography includes a large number of mostly English, but also German and Scandinavian studies that have been published since the late 1980s. The author, Svante Cornell, has established himself during the last half-decade as one of the most prolific authors on the politics of the Caucasus. Readers familiar with the literature on the region will recognize in several chapters of this volume updated and augmented versions of some of the articles published by the author in recent years.

Armenian-Azeri dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, and conflicts in Georgia, Chechnya, and elsewhere in the North Caucasus.
Roles of Turkey, Iran, Russia, and the United States.

Pro-Azeri and pro-Turkish bias, which taints his analysis of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, of Turkey's role in the Caucasus, and of Armenian-Turkish relations in particular. Thus, an entire section entitled the "Shock of Khojaly" is devoted to the massacre of Azeri civilians by Karabakh Armenian forces . . .
