Professor Simon Payaslian of Boston University presents a brief but rich and multifaceted overview of two and a half thousand years of Armenian history. His research efforts are focused on four major topics: the geo-political rivalry between East and West, Armenian culture, political leadership, and the fight for national survival.
Beginning with the appearance of the first Armenian dynasties and the emergence of the independent state, the conversion to Christianity, the creation of the Armenian alphabet, through the genocide in World War I, down to the proclamation of the new Republic of Armenia in 1991, the author has not overlooked any important episode in the whirlwind of intrigues, clashes, and dire ordeals. From antiquity to modern times, from King Artashes I in the 2nd century B.C. to the breakup of the Soviet Union, Armenian history has always been a furious struggle for security and survival, often waged in tragic circumstances, the struggle of a strong and worthy nation that has jealously guarded and preserved its character and identity.
