Georgia:, A State History

Creator: Buddy Sullivan, Georgia Historical Society | History - 2010-05-05

This book is the latest in a long line of distinguished publications produced by the Society that promote a better understanding of Georgia history and the people who make it.

Publisher: Arcadia Pub

About this book
Georgia's past has diverged from the nation's and given the state and its people a distinctive culture and character. Some of the best, and the worst, aspects of American and Southern history can be found in the story of what is arguably the most important state in the South. Yet just as clearly Georgia has not always followed the road traveled by the rest of the nation and the region. Explaining the common and divergent paths that make us who we are is one reason the Georgia Historical Society has collaborated with Buddy Sullivan and Arcadia Publishing to produce Georgia: A State History, the first full-length history of the state produced in nearly a generation.Sullivan's lively account draws upon the vast archival and photographic collections of the Georgia Historical Society to trace the development of Georgia's politics, economy, and society and relates the stories of the people, both great and small, who shaped our destiny.This book opens a window on our rich and sometimes tragic past and reveals to all of us the fascinating complexity of what it means to be a Georgian.The Georgia Historical Society was founded in 1839 and is headquartered in Savannah. The Society tells the story of Georgia by preserving records and artifacts, by publishing and encouraging research and scholarship, and by implementing educational and outreach programs. This book is the latest in a long line of distinguished publications produced by the Society that promote a better understanding of Georgia history and the people who make it.

Georgia, In the Mountains of Poetry

Creator: Peter Nasmyth | 2006-12-06

First published in 1998, this book has become one of the comprehensive cultural and historical introductions to modern Georgia. This third edition brings the drama-rich story up to date.

Publisher: Taylor & Francis

About this book
This book is the first comprehensive cultural and historical introduction to modern Georgia. It covers the country region by region, taking the form of a literary journey through the transition from Soviet Georgia to the modern independent nation state. Peter Nasmyth traveled extensively in Georgia over a period of 5 years, and his lively and topical survey charts the nation's remarkable cultural and historical journey to statehood. This authoritative, lively and perceptive book is based on hundreds of interviews with modern Georgians, from country priests to black marketeers. "Georgia: Mountains and Honour will be essential reading for anyone interested in this fascinating region, as well as those requiring an insight into the life after the collapse of the old Soviet order in the richest and most dramatic of the former republics.

    Globe Pequot Press

    nice update to the book, but not so "off the path"

    The popular "Off the Beaten Path" book for Georgia has been updated by prolific Georgia Author Janice McDonald for its 10th edition.McDonald does a good job in the book of balancing Metro area Atlanta with the rest of the State. I think 1/3 of the book covers the Metro area. I did notice that many of the Atlanta area locations were not really "off the beaten path" type locations, but pretty well known. (I've only lived here a few months and I've heard of them)When she gets out of the Metro area, the book comes up with lots of good "Road Trip" ideas and also a number of good recommendations for accommodations and eating. Many of the trips can be done in a day from Atlanta area or over a long weekend.If you are looking for really "weird" of unique locations you might enjoy ... 4/5 Gene Bowker "Rusted Rail Images" (Duluth, GA) - See all my reviews, July 8, 2013

    0 5/5 Violet - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's The Carolinas & Georgia (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Fo some reason, it is so hard to find a travel guide for this region (and I'm really not sure why, particularly as Charleston and Savannah were recently named as 2 of the top 3 cities in the US to travel to by Travel + Leisure magazine: http://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best-cities-2014-winners-list). So thank you to Fodor's for not only covering this popular region ignored by most travel guide companies, but also for covering it so well! This book is very thorough, and it includes great information for visiting the region, as well as lovely pictures. Highly recommend to anyone visiting these states. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 13, 2014

    LP: Definitely Necessary and Almost Sufficient

    This is a review for the 4th edition of the Lonely Planet "Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan".All-in-all, this is a positive review. To put it in perspective: I have not used the previous editions of this book, or any other travel guides for the region. I travelled all three countries in two weeks, actually using the route (Tbilisi, Baku, Seki, Yerevan, two monasteries, Tbilisi, Kazbegi) suggested by the book for such an endeavor, even if decided independently from the book.The LP proved to be quite useful, in particular when it comes to the maps and information on transportation (departure sites and times). Of course, some timetables change, so if you tend to plan tightly, try to inquire ahead of time. The map material was generally sufficient, though sometimes slightly inaccurate, which may also be caused by the vicious construction activity particularly in Georgia. A separate map for the Kazbegi area would be helpful. It would be nice to have some information... 4/5 kmir "kmir" (Nashville, TN US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Most useful Caucasus guide book for an odd reason

    We have just returned from a month-long trip through the three countries of the Caucasus and found, sadly, that they (to paraphrase the old Kingston Trio song) don't like each other very much. While Georgia is on good terms with both neighboring Armenia and Azerbaijan, the latter two seem to be on a collision course... reinterpreting history to suit their own current political ends. If you visit Armenia first and travel to occupied Karabagh, forget getting into Azerbaijan. You will even be hassled at the airports of both capitals if your passport contains a visa from the other country.This whole bit of nastiness between the two even extends to guidebooks a traveler might be carrying upon entering one or the other. If authorities notice in Baku that you have an "Armenia Guidebook" they will confiscate it... and visa versa in Yerevan if you have an "Azerbaijan Guidebook." This, therefore, makes the Lonely Planet Guide that covers all three countries a good choice for a... 5/5 Sharon (Langley, WA, United States) - See all my reviews, October 29, 2012

    travel in the Caucasus

    0 4/5 tomfelix - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan (Travel Guide) (Paperback) The book is more than adequate as a guide to the region, if not quite as thorough as it might be. But it covers three very different countries in a fairly remote part of the world, so that's to be expected. I found no other concise travel guides out there for the Caucasus. I tried to follow one of the walking tours described in the book, and that proved challenging, though eventually I was able to find the landmarks they mentioned. Again, overall it does the job more than adequately. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 12, 2012

    Very Enjoyable and Fascinating

    Until somewhat recently, I never knew about this book. I have seen some of the other books in the series, but never really looked through them. But, being someone from Georgia, this one caught my eye. Actually, I was more led by my higher self to find it. You see, back in 2006, Jim Miles (the author) contacted me via phone to ask if he could use some of my entries from my paranormal investigation team's journal (that we had up on a website) from two hunts we did back in 2000. I did not know what he wanted to use, but gave him my permission. That was the last I heard about it until browsing around in my local Barnes & Nobles one day. I came across the Georgia books area and saw one on ghosts, which grabbed my attention. Then I glanced up to see "Weird Georgia" and decided to look through it. To my surprise, I flipped directly to page 232 and my journal entry from our R.J. Taylor Memorial Hospital investigation in Hawkinsville with my name credited (as well as my friends)... 4/5 Elak Swindell "Movie Addict" (Georgia USA) - See all my reviews, January 22, 2013

This review is from: Good Night Georgia (Good Night Our World series) (Board book) We are big fans of the Good Night Our World Series. The Georgia book did not let us down. It did a good job of showcasing the various more well-known attractions of the state. It would have been cool if they also featured Augusta and mentioned the Masters being played there. I'm not an avid golf fan, but everyone knows that is one of Georgia's featured events. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 10, 2012
