The Armenians of Lebanon-U.S. Book Launch and Talk by Dr. Aida Boudjikanian Independent Scholar
Dr. Aida Boudjikanian, editor of Armenians of Lebanon: From Past Princesses and Refugees to Present-Day Community, will speak in connection with the U.S. launch of the book, published by Haigazian University and NAASR's Armenian Heritage Press. The volume, which includes an introduction by Dr. Boudjikanian, compiles papers given at the 2005reference "Armenians of Lebanon: Past and Present," held on the occasion of Haigazian's 50th anniversary.

Dr. Boudjikanian, originally from Lebanon and presently living in Montreal, haswritten and lectured widely on issues relating to the Armenian diaspora. She has authored an MA thesis on the Armenians of Lebanon and Ph.D. dissertations on the Armenians of Lyon (France) and Montreal.

Volume contributor Dr. Asbed Kotchikian of Bentley University will also be present and will offer remarks.

The hardcover book is 506 pages-long and has 14 chapters grouped thematically and chronologically in 8 parts. Seven chapters are in English, four in French, and three in Armenian-the languages in which the original papers were presented. Translated abstracts are given at the end of the chapters. The
volume contains biographies of the authors and photographs and maps, as well as appendices with documents and additional information in several languages.

Covering the full span of Armenian history and society in Lebanon from medieval times to the present day, the book is a unique repository of the rich culture and vitality of one of the most important Armenian diaspora communities. It provides a wealth of information for both the scholar and the layperson and is,of course, of particular interest for those with ties to Lebanon.

Armenians of Lebanon is available for $35.00 (less 15% for NAASR members). It will be on sale the night of the lecture and available for signing.
