Dr. Roubina Peroomian recently released her "Armenia in the ARF-Bolshevik Era" (1917-1921).
The book–edited by Professor Lentroush Khourshoutian–holder of a Ph.D. in Historical Sciences–was published under the sponsorship of the Armenian History Department of the University of Yerevan.
The publication features one of contemporary Armenian history’s most significant periods. It studies the relationship of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation and the Bolsheviks during the First World War and the Bolshevik revolutions–and determines how that relationship affected the sustenance of the first Armenian republic.
The book recognizes the efforts of the Armenian leadership against Armenian and foreign elemen’s who contributing to the fall of the government and Armenia’s loss of independence–through military force or propaganda tactics. It also acknowledges the successes and failures of the efforts led by the ARF against those elemen’s. The study is presented in a unique fashion–justified with analysis and a particular style.
The publication of almost 400 pages is geared toward both historians of the field–as well as the general public.
Dr. Peroomian has dedicated the book to her father–Dr. Paghtik Minassian–who–following the path of the party to which he was faithful–dedicated his life to his homeland and the Armenian people–and passed away without witnessing a free and independent Armenia.
The Indroduction is written by Dr. Khourtoushian. The book has 12 chapters and is full of maps and photographs.
Dr. Peroomian will be on hand for a booksigning at Sardarabad Bookstore–Thursday–December 18–from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The bookstore is located at 1111 S. Glendale Ave.–in Glendale.
