In the scientific work on the basis of rich factual materials, modern specific literature and new archival documents, a new conception of the Georgian nation and Georgian state’s historic development are represented from ancient times until the 21st century. Important stages of material and religious culture of Georgian people are reviewed and peculiarities of historic development are elucidated.

We must emphasize the devotion of Georgian people towards the Western values (Christian religion, advantage of democratic system, respect towards personal rights of a man and etc.) and the struggle against totalitarian ideology and antidemocratic system of ruling.

In this book, special attention is paid to the fact that the relationship of Georgia and America is building a new Georgia which has been of great importance. (Imprint: Nova)
