As a new independent Republic of Armenia is established among the ruins of the Soviet Union, Armenians are rethinking their history―the processes by which they arrived at statehood in a small part of their historic homeland, and the definitions they might give to boundaries of their nation. Both a victim and a beneficiary of rival empires, Armenia experienced a complex evolution as a divided or an erased polity with a widespread diaspora.

Ronald Grigor Suny traces the cultural and social transformations and interventions that created a new sense of Armenian nationality in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Perceptions of antiquity and uniqueness combined in the popular imagination with the experiences of dispersion, genocide, and regeneration to forge an Armenian nation in Transcaucasia. Suny shows that while the limits of Armenia at times excluded the diaspora, now, at a time of state renewal, the boundaries have been expanded to include Armenians who live beyond the borders of the republic.

About the Author:

RONALD GRIGOR SUNY is Alex Manoogian Professor of Modern Armenian History at the University of Michigan. A specialist in the history of the non-Russian peoples of the Soviet Union, he is the author of The Making of the Georgian Nation and editor of Transcaucasia, Nationalism, and Social Change.

From Library Journal:

Suny, an established historian of this region and its peoples, examines the development and nature of Armenian identity and nationality in a series of essays written over the past several decades. From the study of nationalism and socialism among the Armenians in Russia over the past two centuries, Suny moves toward concepts of modernization, statehood, and culture under the Soviets and following the demise of the USSR. Through the discipline of the historical method and theory, the author seeks to stretch beyond the focus upon Armenians as an endangered people, a perspective expounded by the many works on the Turkish massacre of Armenians during World War I. Suny succeeds in this endeavor and offers the student and researcher a fine collection of scholarly articles for larger library collections and those specializing in the study of this area.
