An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus (2013)

An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus delves into the complexities of the region around Sochi, Russia, and its remarkable transition in preparation to host the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. A subtropical Soviet-era resort on the Black Sea in the heart of the Caucasus region and far from central Moscow, Sochi lies in close proximity to the conflict zone of Abkhazia, and the impoverished, unstable republics of the North Caucasus. As a place where beach-tourism abuts terrorism, corruption, and poverty, it is full of contradictions. An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus draws viewers into the story of Sochi and the Caucasus, focusing on evocative individual narratives that collectively chronicle larger issues.

“Their lavishly illustrated book conveys the texture of this impossibly multilayered region more powerfully than any other I’ve seen.”
