The Role Educational Exchanges Played in Georgia’s Rose Revolution?
As I continue to research and read (sometimes scan) for my dissertation proposal I hope to post to IHEC Blog or IHEC Blog’sFacebook Page from time to time about interesting books, reports, blogs, data or other interesting items that I think IHEC Blog readers will find interesting. One such item that I have found to be of interest is a new (2009) book by Lincoln A. Mitchell entitled “Uncertain Democracy: U.S. Foreign Policy and Georgia's Rose Revolution.” In his book, Mitchell discusses international educational exchanges and study tours and states that these programs “contributed to the conditions that made a democratic breakthrough in Georgia possible…[but] they played a secondary and indirect role.” I haven’t read all of the book yet but have found it to be a good read and I’ve learned much about Georgia and the Rose Revolution.
