Kaplan takes reader on a tour of the Caucasus Mountains, a mountain range located on the land bridge between Europe and Asia. Since the dawn of history, civilizations have collided there, and "the region's dozens of ethnic groups have been noted for 'obstinacy and ferocity' since ancient times." Kaplan gives a brief historical account of the area as well as examining the politics of the region today.
