Written from a multidisciplinary perspective, Global Security Watch—The Caucasus States is the first serious study to investigate the 21st-century security concerns raised by the Caucasus states of Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia—states that interact with the Great Powers in a region that has become even more significant as a new energy corridor for the West.
Following a review of the geographic and historical characteristics of the South Caucasus region, the book examines the political and security conditions of each Caucasus state, providing a highly detailed analysis of the political roots of security challenges, the key players, and the farthest-reaching effects of events and leaders. A final chapter summarizes the main security concerns of all three states for the future. Beyond the policy significance of this work, readers will find it useful for examining the relevance of the Clash of Civilization theory to a geographic region that led previous generations to formulate theories such as the "Great Game" and the "New Great Game."

The South Caucasus region, which is occupied by the Caucasus states of Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia, has historically been central to many significant national, regional, and international security issues, primarily due to its sensitive geopolitical position at the crossroads of regional and global powers. Few other regions in the world straddle as central a geographic position relative to major international security issues.
