ARMENIA - VISION OF A REPUBLIC: The Independence Lobby in America 1918-1927
By Gregory Aftandilian
After the devastation of the Armenian Genocide in the First World War, a group of influential Americans set up a lobby for the creation of an independent Armenian Republic. Known as the American Committee for the independence of Armenia, it was led by Vahan Cardashian, a tenacious American-Armenian lawyer. This book takes a look at the ultimately unsuccessful nine year struggle of the ACIA, while taking into account the territorial and economic interests of the world’s superpowers.
