The History of Armenia
New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2007, 304 pages. ISBN 978-1-4039-7467-9.
From its genesis through the Genocide to the second independent republic, Armenia has experienced a history of conquest and near annihilation, fragmentation and dispersion, as well as moments of renaissance. Simon Payaslian has written a fluent synthesis of that disjointed, frequently tragic, often inspiring history. In this single volume he has brought together the best of recent scholarship with balance and clarity to illustrate how a people has survived in a most dangerous neighborhood for two and a half millennia.
