“Brilliant.”―Time 
 
“Admirable, rigorous. De Waal [is] a wise and patient reporter.”―The New York Review of Books 
 
“Never have all the twists and turns, sad carnage, and bullheadedness on all side been better described―or indeed, better explained...Offers a deeper and more compelling account of the conflict than anyone before.”―Foreign Affairs 
 

Since its publication in 2003, the first edition of Black Garden has become the definitive study of how Armenia and
Azerbaijan, two southern Soviet republics, were pulled into a conflict that
helped bring them to independence, spell the end the Soviet Union, and plunge a
region of great strategic importance into a decade of turmoil. This important
volume is both a careful reconstruction of the history of the Nagorny Karabakh
conflict since 1988 and on-the-spot reporting of the convoluted aftermath. Part
contemporary history, part travel book, part political analysis, the book is
based on six months traveling through the south Caucasus, more than 120
original interviews in the region, Moscow, and Washington, and unique
historical primary sources, such as Politburo archives. The historical chapters
trace how the conflict lay unresolved in the Soviet era; how Armenian and
Azerbaijani societies unfroze it; how the Politiburo failed to cope with the
crisis; how the war was fought and ended; how the international community
failed to sort out the conflict. What emerges is a complex and subtle portrait
of a beautiful and fascinating region, blighted by historical prejudice and
conflict.
 

The revisedand
updated 10th-year anniversary edition includes a new forward, a new
chapter covering developments up to-2011, such as the election of new
presidents in both countries, Azerbaijan’s oil boom and the new arms race in
the region, and a new conclusion, analysing the reasons for the intractability
of the conflict and whether there are any prospects for its resolution. Telling
the story of the first conflict to shake Mikhail Gorbachev's Soviet Union, Black Garden remains a central account
of the reality of the post-Soviet world.

Review:

"Brilliant."-"Time",

"This book is a major milestone in the Western scholarship on Karabakh."-"Armenian Freedom Network"

"This book is helpful because in order to craft a final resolution to the conflict, one must understand what events transpired in the first place. De Waal's book significantly contributes to this purpose and establishes itself as one of the standard works for understanding this conflict."-"Parameters"

"Brilliant."-"Time"

"Admirable, rigorous. De Waal [is] a wise and patient reporter."-"The New York Review of Books"

"Never have all the twists and turns, sad carnage, and bullheadedness on all sides been better described or, indeed, better explained Offers a deeper and more compelling account of the conflict than anyone before."-"Foreign Affairs""

"This book provides a highly informative and evenhanded analysis of the history of the current conflict in Nagorno Karabakh and a portrait of the modern Caucasus republics of Armenia and Azerbaijan....The book also contains a useful chronology of important events. Summing Up Highly recommended."-N. Entessar, "CHOICE""
