Inhaltsangabe: ARMENIA: A Rugged Land, an Enduring People offers a comprehensive introduction to the land, history and culture of the Armenian people in a condensed, easy-to-read format designed for both children and adults.
Within 11 chapters, ARMENIA explores the origins and history of the Armenians, describes the geographical characteristics of the country, notes the achievements of pioneering Armenians, documents the events and evidence surrounding the Armenian Genocide of 1915, and describes what life is like in the country today. The book also includes pages of Armenian phrases and folk tales, authentic Armenian recipes, and addresses of foreign embassies and consulates. A full-color map and over 45 color photographs and illustrations further familiarize readers with the customs and practices in this foreign land.
This installment in the "Discovering Our Heritage" series, published by Dillon Press/Silver Burdett of the Simon & Schuster Education Group, is designed to appeal to the lay population as well as supplement social studies and multi-cultural studies programs on primary, secondary and undergraduate levels. ARMENIA and all other books in this series are intended to address a gap that exists pertaining to country studies for which Americans may possess little awareness. ARMENIA is also intended to familiarize young Americans of Armenian descent about the heritage of their ancestors, and even serve as a travel guide for anyone thinking about visiting Armenia today.
ARMENIA makes history (so often the subject of dry, turgid, massive tomes) a lively and uniquely interesting experience. -- Roben Torossian for The Armenian Reporter
ARMENIA takes us closer to filling the void of mainstream educational materials addressing the history of Armenia and Armenians. -- Nicole Vartanian for Armenian Forum
ARMENIA will find shelf-space in homes, schools and libraries as a rare research tool for the "middle-aged" student. -- AIM magazine
The descendant of genocide survivors, Kasbarian devotes much attention to this horrific event that has received too little coverage. -- Multicultural Review
This supplementary reader for high school age students is excellent for all ages. -- FACES: People, Places and Cultures
