This is great book that depicts the conflict in Nagorny-Karabakh. I'm not an expert but from what I can tell, the author is fairly objective. The author goes over the history of the region from 1988 to the present years of frozen conflict.

I would recommend this book, although not as an introduction to Karabakh. It is a tad lengthy, and filled with anecdotes -- some personal and some not. The anecdotes add a personal touch and some context to the storyline but they also add weight to the book.
