Product Description


Robert Hewsen has prepared an "opus magnum" that has no rival in Armenian studies. This pioneering and largely definitive work is the best atlas of Armenia ever prepared. It will be a valuable tool in the hands of historians, geographers, and students of Armenia and the Armenian people. . . . The atlas is accompanied by a rich historical and geographical text that enriches it enormously. The maps themselves are computer generated, clear, well presented, and attractive. Hewsen is to be heartily congratulated on a work that is extremely useful and will now form the authoritative basis for this field. All students of Armenia are in his debt. --Michael E. Stone "Slavic Review ""

Format: Hardcover
This is a good work for students of Armenian history, and invaluable for gaining a sense of geography for the region. As with any historical atlas, the boundaries are approximations of territories in the periods covered, and the historical analysis is not hugely detailed, but Hewsen has created a very good introduction into the subject.

HASH(0x9a779990) out of 5 stars Invaluable historical atlas; couldn't be better 30 Sept. 2002
By Armen Jamkotchian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing atlas presenting in-depth covering of the long and turbulent history of Armenia. There are numerous publications on Armenian history, but they either contain plain maps, or plan text. This one not only presents an enormous number of extremely valuable and rare historical maps covering about three thousand years' history, but also presents in a very reader-friendly style unbiased historical facts associated with every single map. More than that, it presents invaluable statistical information, such as the population by regions. It also presents very intriguing architectural data. One of invaluable features of the book is the coverage of the Armenian genocide and the first republic.
This is more than a book - it is a great treasure that anyone interested in history in general and Armenian history in particular MUST have.

HASH(0x9a8ad3b4) out of 5 stars An outstanding accomplishment! 2 Aug. 2002
By José Saavedra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I cannot imagine a more comprehensive effort on telling -and mapping- the history of a people. This atlas is a delight to go to once and again. It contains a treasury of well-explained and well-presented historical facts on the Armenian nation, whose boundaries have suffered so many changes throughout the ages.
The price...is steep but well justified. My only comment would be that,if you are interested in a superficial or introductory work, you are paying here for more than you need. If, however, you want to go deep, this atlas is a must. In addition to the maps, the text is very rich and I can't think of any item of information on the Armenian people that would not be covered here.

HASH(0x9ab09a14) out of 5 stars IT's BIG, I'll give it that. 29 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Hewson's book requires a large coffee table with sturdy legs. Well worth the price, it will fascinate all ethnicities by its girth. The painstakingly rendered maps are only part of the magic. The accompanying research of each period of the history of this Region, (which encompasses more than just the Armenian culture) incorporates many sources to deliver a volume that is at once simple enough for the novice researcher and involved enough for those already familiar with the subject matter.

HASH(0x9a5e9a80) out of 5 stars The Ideal Historical Atlas 14 Jan. 2006
By Mark D. Merlino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Robert Hewsen's "Armenia A Historical Atlas" is a true masterpiece. This atlas contains 278 detailed color maps that chronicle Armenian history from antiquity to the present day. The maps are meticulously accurate, very detailed and visually appealing. They also show precise topographic, political, religious, onomastic and historical details. There is a mixture of many regional maps, detailed local maps, city maps and even building plans.

Each map is accompanied by a very detailed overview of the time period and theme covered in the map. The work is a remarkable feat of research, drawing on countless primary and secondary sources in numerous languages.

The real strength of this work is that it chronicles, in both visual and written form, Armenian history from generation to generation over millennia. As such, this book is an invaluable resource for all histories that coincide with Armenian history, especially the regions of regions of Eastern Anatolia, Western Iran and the Caucasus. You will find numerous historical details about Byzantine, Persian, Eastern Christian, Seljuk, Georgian, Ottoman, Russian and Soviet histories not easily found in other historical atlases.

I highly recommend this atlas to anyone interested in Armenian history or in the history of this region.

HASH(0x9a86c528) out of 5 stars comprehesive 24 Oct. 2005
By Donald J. Tellalian, AIA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although it is published as an atlas, through both historical and contemporary maps, diagrams and text, Robert Hewsen manages to trace all the important cultural, military, geopolitical and geographic influences and changes within Anatolia and the Caucasian region. For those interested in Armenian, Roman, Persian and Ottoman/Trukish history, it serves as a comprehesive, yet easy source, for both scholar and non-scholar alike.
