1. Introduction:
--------------
The Caucasus situated on the frontiers of Europe and Asia is a
crossroad and gateway between Cultures and Civilizations, (between
Europe and Asia, Islam and Christianity, Turks, Iranians and Slavs.)
In the famous Caucasus Mountains, where Prometheus was punished and
chained to the rocks because he had stolen the fire from the gods to
hand to mankind, seems to be the most fertile ground for ethnic
violence. The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan about Nagorno
Karabagh, The Abkhazian-Georgian conflict and the Chechen-Russian War.
These wars costed more than 100,000 lives and resulted in millions of
refugees.

- What are the causes of conflicts in the Caucasus?  Is this an area
where there will never be peace?
- What is the role of international organizations and the media in
these conflicts?
- Could methods of conflict resolution help make the region less
tense?
- What is the role of millions of women, who suffer the most from wars
that are fought mainly by male heroes?

This book gives answer to these and other relevant questions. The
authors are all experts and specialists of the region or
representatives from the countries involved in conflicts. It is a book
that it should not be missed both by experts as laymen who are
interested in the region.
