Post-Soviet Armenia : The New National Elite and the New National Narrative Hardback
Part of the BASEES/Routledge Series on Russian and East European Studies series
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Armenia has struggled to establish itself, with a faltering economy, emigration of the intelligentsia and the weakening of civil society.
This book explores how a new national elite has emerged and how it has constructed a new national narrative to suit Armenia's new circumstances.
The book examines the importance of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Azerbaijan, considers the impact of fraught relations with Turkey and the impact of relations with other neighbouring states including Russia, and discusses the poorly-developed role of the very large Armenian diaspora.
Overall, the book provides a key overview to understanding the forces shaping all aspects of present-day Armenia.
