In the groundbreaking new book HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS, author Matthew Karanian celebrates the Armenia that has avoided destruction: its monuments, churches, and people-- the hidden Armenians who have persevered in the face of persecution.


HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS shines a light on the Western Armenia that defies eradication, and leads us on a journey of rediscovery. For the first time since the Armenian Genocide, the cultural wealth of the Armenian nation in Western Armenia is presented in one readable and beautifully illustrated volume.

This book will guide you to the history and culture of the ancient Armenian homeland-- whether you intend to travel there in person, or only through the pages of this book.

HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS is the product of several years of research and photography. The book's 176 pages are illustrated with 125 color photographs and maps, including antique photos from one century ago.
