|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, a book by Dr. Arra S. Avakian, answers that need. In it, he presents
to you 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 vignettes lend extra vitality to the telling.

|In ARMENIA: A Journey Through History,
Dr. Avakian has been able to put together 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.
"This book is a must for every Armenian Home...and a great
resource for public, high school, college and university libraries.
It is also excellent as a supplemental textbook for Armenian
schools. Kudos to Dr. Avakian for writing it in a way that presents
the story of the Armenians in such an accessible manner."
