Azerbaijan Since Independence (Studies of Central Asia and the Caucasus) by Svante E. Cornell



Series: Studies of Central Asia and the Caucasus. Paperback: 512 pages. The introductory chapters on Imperial and Soviet Azerbaijan are okay, although the 70 years of Soviet Azerbaijan really aren't done much justice. But then the trouble starts. The description of the early post-Soviet period is pretty terrible.

Richard Weitz Moscow's agenda in Central Asia and the Caucasus: it is official The CACI Analyst, March 18th, 2016. The states of Central Asia and the South Caucasus are in for a rough ride if recent Russian national security documents and speeches genuinely represent the Kremlin’s worldview. Cornell is a Swedish scholar specializing on politics and security issues in Eurasia, especially the South Caucasus, Turkey, and Central Asia. American journalist Joshua Kucera, in his article about Cornell's 2010 book Azerbaijan Since Independence, thinks that "Cornell is generally pretty pro-Azerbaijan, and his framing of the situation as something inevitable seems to absolve Azerbaijan of any responsibility for its actions, which I think one could quibble with. But he knows Azerbaijan well, and this is an analysis worth considering.

There are not a lot of good books on post-Soviet Azerbaijan around. I'd always recommend Thomas Goltz' "Azerbaijan diary" as tremendously readable and very interesting in places, but it's about as objective as Mein Kampf. So when I saw this book, my hopes were high.

Not impressed. The introductory chapters on Imperial and Soviet Azerbaijan are okay, although the 70 years of Soviet Azerbaijan really aren't done much justice. But then the trouble starts.

The description of the early post-Soviet period is pretty terrible. It reads like a freshman student writing a term paper after only reading Goltz' book as source material. Unsupported allegations are rife and the writing is just plain bad. But things don't improve when the Alievs enter the scene. The author thanks the current president, Ilham Aliev, in his preface, and that's never a good sign. The tone of the chapters on the Aliev (pere et fils) period is just worshipful, and that raises huge questions about the completeness or reliability. I do appreciate the author's persistent noting of electoral fraud in Alievistan but even so, this is almost as bad as that ghastly biography of Nazarbayev written by some British politico. Even Goltz provided more depth in his portrayal of Aliev.

Given what's been going on in the reviews and comments so far, any review of any book like this will apparently turn into an Armenian-Azeri poo-flinging contest, so before the poo starts flying, let me just say this book left me dissatisfied. I'm still looking for a GOOD study of Aliev and the house he built.

There are not that many books about Azerbaijan published in US (both pro or contra:) for people willing to learn something about it to be able to blatantly dismiss this book. Mr. Cornell does great job familiarizing western readers with Azerbaijan. I can see from the previous comment that it was made even without reading the book, which is based on pretty extensive research. His facts are straight, reliable and can be easily checked. What else anyone can require from a historian?

Cornell is a paid lobbyist of Azeri interest. If one wishes to read a work of pro Azeri propaganda sanctioned by the criminal regime in Baku then this is the book. Otherwise look for a title by an author who isn't on the payroll of the dictator of Azerbaijan.
