Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkey: Addressing Paradoxes of Culture Geography and History

15.00

By Rouben Galichian

Armenia, as a Christian country, has been a thorn wedged between its two Turkic neighbors, the Republics of Azerbaijan and Turkey. This geographic fact has been the cause of many cultural, political and ethnographic problems arising from it. Following the aims of creating a Pan-Turkic belt of countries stretching from Europe to Central Asia, efforts were made by the Ottoman Turkey to eliminate the presence of Christian Armenians from the region. After independence the authorities of the Republic of Azerbaijan have taken this policy to the extreme. These policies have given rise to call the Armenians as newcomers in their historic homeland, where they have lived for over two and half millennia. Every effort has been made to either appropriate or to demolish Armenian historical monuments. False claims and theories have caused many historical and cultural paradoxes, some of which are addressed in this volume. To this end all materials used have been mainly taken from non-Armenian sources.
