The Independent Expertsí Club (IEC) has just published a second volume of articles prepared by its members titled Georgia, 2009 Post-War Challenges & Perspectives. The book is an attempt to give individual views of political analysts and experts in different fields of the situation in the country almost year and a half after the Russian invasion. In introducing the book, the President of the IEC Soso Tsiskarishvili stated that the opinions expressed in each article represent the personal view of the individual author. The articles included provide different views of different experts. They highlight challenges and developments, and outline possible outcomes. This is a valuable contribution to the applied analysis of the current situation in the country. It would be interesting if the ruling administration uses opinions and advice reflected in the volume as they are written not by the enemies of the country but by experienced people who are in love with their country and want a better future for it. The first volume prepared and published by IEC - Crises in Georgia, 2008 Ė Preconditions, Reality and Perspectives was published in February 2009. As Soso Tsiskarishvili commented, that book had no response whatsoever from the ruling authorities either from the Parliament or Government or elsewhere. Letís hope that this time the efforts of the leading analysts will not be in vain.
