Vicious Circle

'In war, you can only be killed once, but in politics, many times,' Winston Churchill once famously said. If a line between political life and political death were drawn at the five-percent election threshold, one could say that only two political forces of the entire local political spectrum – the United National Movement (47%) and Bidzina Ivanishvili’s coalition...

Davit Gamkrelidze: Radicalism did not bring any result

Several years ago, the New Rights Party united in the Alliance For Georgia along with Bidzina Ivanishvili’s current allies – the Republican Party and Irakli Alasania’s Our Georgia-Free Democrats.

Khatia Buniatishvili – Mephisto Waltz

“Though aged just 24, she has already been justifiably hailed as one of the great pianists of the future. She's an exciting risk-taker. In the allegro of the ‘Tempest’ sonata, for example, she was simply audacious with the tempi and played single pianissimo lines with spooky open pedals, recreating this already revolutionary music and demanding that we reassess...

Liam Fox: 'European Union' and 'Europe' are not synonymous

L iam Fox, Conservative Member of the British Parliament and until a few months ago Britain’s Secretary of State for Defense, paid a two-day visit to Georgia in early-January. While here, Dr. Fox met with high-level Georgian officials and representatives of civil society.

Letter from the Editor

Everyone seems to notice that time passes much too quickly – once time has passed. For those engaged in the rapid-paced news “industry,” time flies extremely fast.

Keeping pace with technological innovations turns traditional methods of media management upside down and requires that those methods be updated time and again as you go along. It has been two years now since the...
