For most people of Armenian descent, both young and old, there has always been a pressing need to learn about their cultural heritage; their legacy as an ancient people with a highly advanced culture. ARMENIA: A Journey Through History answers that need. In it, Dr. Avakian presents the reader a wealth of information about the Armenian people, their history, their significant events, their important places, and individuals who did much to make the Armenian nation what it is. The information is given in well over one hundred separate stories, each one complete in itself, concise, and easy to read and understand. Illustrations accompanying many of the profiles lend extra vitality to the telling.
In ARMENIA: A Journey Through History, Dr Avakian has assembled and presented an enormous amount of information. The work is highly accessible to both young and old, and is especially useful as a reference source and textbook. The individual short stories make the learning process more palatable especially to the young. Indeed, one who did not know anything about Armenia and Armenians, having read this book, could very well be considered somewhat of an expert on the topic.
