Sergius Hasan-Jalaliants’ History of the Land of Artsakh (Patmutiwn Aghuanits Ashkhari), writ-ten in the first quarter of the 19th century, continues the work of his earlier relative Isaiah (Esai) Hasan-Jalaliants, in presenting the history of Karabagh (which the author refers to as the “land of Aghuank”) in the period of the Armeno-Persian and Russo-Persian wars (1722-1827), a crucial period in the his-tory of the region. The elder Jalaliants’ history was translated by George Bournoutian; newly pub-lished by Mazda Publishers is the History of the Land of Artsakh in a translation by Ka‘ren Ketendjian, edited and with an introduction by Robert H. Hewsen. Born in New York City, Robert H. Hewsen received his doctorate from Georgetown University where he studied Armenian history under the late pioneer Armenist Cyril Toumanoff. From 1967 to 1999, he taught Russian and Byzantine History at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, as well as other major universities. Dr. Hewsen is the author of numerous scholarly works, including the landmark Armenia: A Historical Atlas. A native of Erevan, Armenia, Ka‘ren V. Ketendjian received his master’s degree from V. I. Brusov Foreign Language Institute in Armenia where he studied English and Russian languages and litera-ture. Mr. Ketendjian received his juris doctor degree in law from San Joaquin College of Law. He is a duly licensed attorney and has his own private practice in Fresno, California where he currently re-sides with his wife. He is active in the Fresno Armenian community affairs. Mr. Ketendjian’s roots are from Cilicia and Gandzak, thus his interest in Hasan-Jalaliants’ History, which is his first major at-tempt at translating into English a Classical Armenian text.
