Historical Dictionary of Armenia

Front Cover
Scarecrow Press, 2002 M01 1 - 427 pages
While other works on Armenian history require multiple volumes, the Historical Dictionary of Armenia captures a vast amount of Armenian history in just one - the A-to-Z arrangement offers the choice of reading selectively. By broadly covering the early history and focusing on more recent events, author Rouben Paul Adalian provides readers a way to unravel many of the complexities that arise in the study of this intricate country and its sometimes confusing history.
The entries are related in topical cycles covering the whole span of Armenian history. Subjects such as cities, royal dynasties, political organizations, and national leaders can thus be seen through the common threads that bind them across centuries. The smaller sections are no less important, whether the list of acronyms, which allows for easier navigation of several passages, or the exhaustive bibliography, which points toward many other significant sources of information. Perhaps the most useful section is the fully detailed chronology, which gives readers a roadmap to the countless twists and turns that fill the pages of Armenian history.
