There is a great deal of interest in the history of Armenia since its renewed independence in the 1990s and the ongoing debate about the genocide--an interest that informs the strong desire of a new generation of Armenian Americans to learn more about their heritage and has led to greater solidarity in the community. 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 travellers interested in the region.
