One hundred years after the Armenian Holocaust, the homeland of the Armenians remains unknown to much of the world. During the century since the Genocide of 1915, most of the cultural monuments of the Armenian nation in the lands of historic Armenia have been eliminated or repurposed. But there is much that still remains. Author Matthew Karanian celebrates the Armenia that has avoided destruction, as well as the hidden Armenians who have struggled to carry on in the face of persecution. He shines a light on the remnants of Western Armenia that are at greatest risk of being lost forever, and he leads readers on a journey of rediscovery in this groundbreaking guide, Historic Armenia After 100 Years. For the first time since the Genocide, the cultural wealth of the Armenian nation in Western Armenia is presented in one readable and beautifully illustrated volume. This book serves as a guide through the history and culture of the ancient Armenian homeland—whether one intends 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 by Matthew Karanian. The book is illustrated with 125 colour maps and photographs and includes antique photos from 100 years ago that are juxtaposed with images of the same locales as they appear today.
