This co-presence comes with original application of theoretical literature from cultural and area studies, and anthropology. However, the very evocativeness of place and person sometimes sets up a barrier between reader and subject the young men. The elegance of Frederiksen's writing and impressive theoretical tool box threatens to crowd out informants' inner life. Something of a distance remains between the researcher and researched.
This is highlighted by some of the narrative language used.
This reportage style is perhaps because, as Frederiksen notes, at the time of the fieldwork he was developing his language skills as he went along there are a few mistakes in Russian that illustrate this. As a result, a kind of hazy veil intervenes between readers and the dispossessed young men like Emil. What we do learn—about the men's drug use, borderline mental disorders, endless illness, and extremely precarious lives—makes this kind of study all the more remarkable and impressive as a research achievement.

Instead, they feel marginalized both by space and time—passed over and without prospects. This distinctive case study provides empirical evidence for a deeper understanding of contemporary societal developments and their effects on individual experiences.

Young Men, Time, and Boredom in the Republic of Georgia develops stimulating ideas about temporal disjunctures and marginalization and adds significantly to the literature on post-Soviet states while providing an important study of youth. The innovative theoretical perspectives on ruins, haunting, time, and temporality are all presented with a light touch that never moves far from the reality that inspires them and that they illuminate. Frederiksen generates endless surprises and immense insights: They are generated at the boundaries of realities and imaginaries, localities and elsewhere—a present that is shot through with the haunting of pasts and futures.
This book is fascinating, thought provoking, and illuminating.

The author has a keen eye for telling ethnographic details, and liberal use of his graphic field notes makes it clear that he was an accepted and even cherished member of these brotherhoods. Moreover, his evocative photographs of various sites help to transport the reader into post-Soviet Georgia. There are funny scenes in this touching ethnography and a wealth of insight, as well, but the overall tone of these observations is poignant From these lives, the author extracts a rich conceptual framework Frederiksen alternates between two primary narrative modes: Scholars of cultural anthropology will enjoy this provocative and stylistically compelling monograph.
The events are presented in chronological order as they happened during the course of the year that the author spent in the field. This allows for dramaturgy and for the reader to fully accompany the unfolding of events.
