Some interesting topics were written about Armenia in the 1970’s, and I would advise anyone, especially our Turkish friends who hold a difficult view on the history of Armenia, to read this wonderfully written book Passage to Ararat by Michael J. Arlen whose father was a famous Anglo-Armenian writer of the 1920’s.

Much has been written lately on the troubled course of Armenian history with much pressure brought upon the American and French Governments to see history from the “official Turkish point of view“.

Turkey, historically an ally of the United States and France has an important geographical role to play in coming events in the Middle East, but would win many more “kudos” acknowledging with more objectivity their role in the “Armenian Affair“. The book author not only addresses history, but emphasizes the “human search for identity“.

The book has 293 pages, a dust jacket designed by Janet Halverson, the author’s photo by Jill Krementz, published 1975, third printing, New York.
