Book Title: Nagorno-Karabakh: A Reassessment of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Conflict
The Azerbaijani attack on the de facto independent Republic of Artsakh in September 2020 shattered the illusion that this conflict is “frozen.” The 44-day war in 2020 was the bloodiest outbreak of violence over the separatist region since the conflict began in the late 1980s and threatened to embroil Turkey and Russia in a dangerous proxy war in the volatile South Caucasus. Many aspects of the conflict remain poorly understood or distorted in Western scholarship due to US-NATO political influence. Are the origins of the conflict found in Soviet nationalities policy? Do the Armenians in Artsakh have a right to self-determination as enshrined in international law? Did Kosovo’s 2008 declaration of independence establish a precedent for Artsakh and other separatist states? By breaking with the dominant US-NATO political paradigm, this book strives to answer these and many other questions to provide a long overdue reassessment of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Conflict.
