About Empty land Promised land Forbidden landThis book is the result of four trips together with writer Arnold van Bruggen between 2007 and 2013 to the tiny country of Abkhazia. Abkhazia is isolated, ruined, and seemingly without ambition. The country broke away from Georgia after a short, violent civil war in ’92-’93 and was recognized as independent in 2008 by Russia, Venezuela, Nicaragua and the atoll of Nauru. The story is particularly tragic for the thousands of refugees who fled in the early nineties and have little prospect of returning. We visited the refugees in Georgia and then described the attempts made by the Abkhazian government to repopulate the empty, war-ravaged country with new immigrants.
