New Book on President Nursultan Nazarbayev and the Logic of Change

On 17th March 2016, the Georgian National Academy of Sciences hosted the presentation of a new book written by the Ambassador of Kazakhstan in Georgia, prominent politician and scholar, Mr Ermukhamet Ertysbayev, entiltled: ‘Kazakhstan and Nazarbayev: Logic of Change.’

The core of the book, now translated into Georgian, presents the personality of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev. However, this is not a purely biographical edition. The figure of Nazarbayev is viewed in a broader context of public relations, covering both the personal life of the Kazakh President, and his public and political activities within the country and in the international arena.

The book is also different in that in it Nazarbaev is viewed through the prism of his personal qualities in all his internal contradictions and ambiguities.

The book is written clearly and dynamically. It contains unique and previously unknown facts from the life of President Nazarbayev, describes many of today’s leaders in Kazakhstan and the country’s history, collected by the author during his work beside the president of his country.
