HISTORY OF ARMENIA: From the Origins to the Present
by Simon Payaslian
In this concise but rich overview, Simon Payaslian traces centuries of Armenian history. Chock -full of political intrigue, fierce battles, personal, and cultural stories, The History of Armenia offers fascinating insights into the transformations of Armenia and its struggle for survival. Payaslian focuses on the rise and fall of early kingdoms, the Genocide during World War I, and the reestablishment of an Armenian government after seven decades of Soviet Rule.
By integrating themes such as war, geopolitics, and great leaders, with the less familiar cultural themes and personal stories, this book will appeal to general readers and travelers interested in the region.
