    Asia History Armenia History The Great Game of Genocide : Imperialism, Nationalism, and the Destruction of the Ottoman Armenians
    Donald Bloxham
    June 30, 2005
    Book Description
    The Great Game of Genocide addresses the origins, development and aftermath of the Armenian genocide in a wide-ranging reappraisal based on primary and secondary sources from all the major parties involved. Rejecting the determinism of many influential studies, and discarding polemics on all
    sides, it founds its interpretation of the genocide in the interaction between the Ottoman empire in its decades of terminal decline, the self-interested policies of the European imperial powers, and the agenda of some Armenian nationalists in and beyond Ottoman territory. Particular attention is
    paid to the international context of the process of ethnic polarization that culminated in the massive destruction of 1912-23, and especially the obliteration of the Armenian community in 1915-16.
    The opening chapters of the... Black Dog of Fate: A Memoir
    Peter Balakian May 1998 Paperback Book Review The author of four volumes of verse, Peter Balakian writes with the precision of a poet and the lyricism of a privileged suburban child in 1950s New Jersey. He is shadowed by his relatives' carefully guarded memories of past trauma: the brutal Turkish extermination in 1915 of more than a million Armenians, including most of his maternal grandmother's family. Balakian seamlessly interweaves personal and historical material to depict one young man's reclamation of his heritage and to scathingly indict the political forces that conspired to sweep under the rug the 20th century's first genocide.

    edit History
    Although repeatedly invaded, conquered, and ruled by others, Armenia has preserved its national and cultural identity for more than 2,600 years. Armenians take great pride in the fact that for a few generations during the time of Pompeii and Julius Caesar, Armenia was powerful enough to challenge the Roman Empire. Its subsequent history was marked by many struggles for independence and by the domination of many foreign powers. The foundations of Armenian civilization were laid in the sixth century B.C. on the ruins of the ancient kingdom of Urartu. In about 550 B.C., the area became a province of Persia’s Achaemenian Empire. In 331 B.C., Armenia was overrun by Alexander the Great, and in 301 B.C., it became part of the Seleucid Empire. With Rome’s conquest of the Seleucids in 190–189 B.C., Armenia was divided into two provinces: Greater Armenia and Sophene. The nation was reunified by King Tigranes II (95–55 B.C.) and reached the height of its power, extending its dominion to the neighboring regions of Albania and Atropatene (both now in Azerbaijan), Syria, and part of Parthia. In 66 B.C., however, Tigranes was forced to cede territory and form an alliance with Rome. Armenia subsequently became the focus of Roman and Parthian-Persian rivalry that lasted until the third century A.D.

    After the destruction of the Seleucid Empire, the first Armenian state
    was founded in 190 BC. At its zenith, from 95 to 55 BC, Armenia
    extended its rule over the area of what is now eastern Turkey. For a
    time, Armenia was the strongest state in the Roman East. It became
    part of the Roman Empire and adopted a Western political,
    philosophical, and religious orientation. In 301 AD, Armenia became the first nation to adopt Christianity as a state religion, establishing in the 6th century a church that still exists independently of both the Catholic and the Eastern Orthodox churches. During its later political eclipses, Armenia depended on the church to preserve and protect its unique identity. Between the 4th and 19th centuries, Armenia was conquered and ruled by, among others, Persians, Byzantines, Arabs, Mongols, and Turks. For a brief period from 1918 to 1920, it was an independent republic. In late 1920, the communists came to power, and in 1922, Armenia

    Armenia in History
    Armenia Armenia about 3000 years ago. The year of 1993 was the 4100th anniversary of the Armenian statehood. According to the History of the Armenians by Movses Khorenatsi in 2107 B.C. the legendary archer Haik defeated the army of the Assyrian king Belus and established the first Armenian kingdom. In 1824 B.C. the Armenian princedoms united and came under one authority thus giving birth to the geographic and political concept of Armenia. Check also these Armenia related links below

    After the fall of Urartu again an Armenian kingdom emerges in the region. The Armenians are the descendants of a branch of Indo-Europeans. According to Strabo, a Greek geographer and historian, the Armenians living in the Armenian Highland spoke one language: Armenian. In the Hellenistic period, with the strengthening of ties and relations between countries and peoples, and international trade becoming more active, Armenia began to trade with neighboring and faraway countries and acting as a transit route. The Hellenic influence was notable also in social and economic sphere, the Greek language being the literary, commercial and legal medium of communication in the entire region. Many Armenian towns were founded during this period. The countries ancient capital

    Armenia in general is a harsh, cold and mountainous land. Russia, the Ukraine and Georgia are to the North, Azerbajian on the East, Iran, Syria and Iraq on the South and Turkey on the West. Armenia has been occupied and divided by Russia, Greece, Turkey and Persia and thus has a cuisine which is complicated by name and ingredients. The fact that Armenia was the first Christian nation on earth and completely surrounded by Moslems and nomadic tribes affected the diet of it's people not only as related to farming methods but also as to religious belief. An agrarian civilization spanning 2600 years, Armenia was the crossroads of the world between East and West, "The silk road". It's food reflects that fact by similarities in recipes from Europe to India.
    The meat staple of the country was lamb and to a lesser extent chicken and beef. No pork was used in the Armenian diet due to biblical belief that only animals that chewed their cud were to be eaten. Seafood was mainly lake or river fish and sturgeon and it's caviar. No salt water ports border modern Armenia.
    Vegetables such as squash, onions, tomatoes, garlic, cabbage, okra, green beans, peppers, cucumbers and eggplant were used quite extensively during the summer growing season. Armenians love vegetables and were very adept at roasting them. Eggplant, peppers, squash, garlic and onions were among their favorites. During the cold winter months the staples were dried fruits, dry preserved olives, nuts, beans, rice and wheat. Meat was preserved like a confit. Lamb was cooked in it's own fat and preserved without refrigeration beneath a thick layer of solidified fat. Called kavourma, the homemaker would reach into a crock of preserved lamb and remove a portion enough for a meal. The meat was so well cooked that it fell off the bone. The fat surface layer was replaced until another portion was needed.

The name of the country, Armenia and people Armens first were mentioned in the cuneiform of Persian king Darii I. The cuneiform was written in three languages-ancient Persian, Accadian and Elammian.

    ... Tavush The history of Armenia is a unique world treasury full of great civilizations' chronicles, biographies of legendary people, dramatic moments connected with formation of Christianity. Armenia repeatedly suffered from conquerors; time and again it seemed that the name of Armenia was erased from the map forever. But Armenian people have survived and defended their existence in fierce battles. Thirty thousand square kilometers which are occupied today by Republic of Armenia make up only a tiny part, less than one tenth of that huge historical Armenia, whose chronicles are a separate chapter in the world's history and culture. Armenian uplands were on the way of major trading and military routes of the Ancient world connecting the East and the West. Such a beneficial position of Armenia was always envied by numerous conquerors. Therefore, the borders of Ancient Armenia were exposed to frequent changes, and Armenians had to move to new lands. That is why the history of Armenia is rich and infinite. But the most important events are as follows
    Ancient Tribes
    Ignoring the fact that the firs people appeared in Armenia during the epoch of early Paleolith, the first pre-Armenian tribes (Urartians, Hourrites, Luvians etc.) which inhabited Armenian uplands, were mentioned in the 4 th 3 rd millennia BC.
