Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the world's first democratic socialist government, the Georgian Democratic Republic. London-based author Eric Lee has written an important book on this long-forgotten but vital experiment in political history, The Experiment: Georgia's Forgotten Revolution, 1918-21

“The first Georgian republic had universal significance,” says Eric Lee.  “The Georgian Social Democrats, led by Noe Zhordania, were both Marxists and democrats.  They created a multi-party, pluralist democracy with free elections – including womens' suffrage – while at the same time carrying out a radical land reform, strengthening the cooperative movement, and encouraging the growth of independent trade unions with the right to strike.  Their experiment in democratic socialism was widely known a century ago, but following the Soviet invasion in 1921, it was largely forgotten.  As the world marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, this is a good time to remind ourselves that another revolution – a humane and democratic one – was possible, as the Georgians proved.”

Eric Lee is a journalist and historian who has spent over thirty years researching independent Georgia, and has himself been active in trade union and political struggles in both the US and UK.His previous works include "Saigon tu Jeruslame: Conversations with Israel's Vietnam Veterans" and "Operation Basalt: The British Raid on Sark and Hitler's Commando Order"
