Description

A publication supported by the Armenian Committee of the Society of Friends, this is a history of the Armenian people. The author explains its existence by declaring that "The justification for this book is twofold ' it lies both in the fact that the literature once available for Englishmen about the noble and tragical history of the Armenian people has gone out of print, and also in the peremptory need to reawaken the reluctant national consciousness once more to our responsibility on the matter, before it is too late to rescue the perishing remnant in Syria and Greece."
