About the Authors
  • This collection of documents and maps provides scholars with an independent research publication whose primary aim is to illustrate key events, using material from British government archives, as markers in defining Armenian territory. These seventy years are crucial in the formation of the boundaries of what now constitutes the state of Armenia. The 'Armenian Question' came under international scrutiny with the rise of modern nationalism in the Armenian communities living in the Ottoman and Russian empires. Borders had always shifted to and fro on the territory inhabited by Armenians. What changed from the nineteenth century onwards was that the Armenians - despite now tried to set a political agenda of their own, ultimately, the creation of an independent Armenian state encompassing a large part of what they considered to be their historical homeland, and to gain the maximum from the rivalry of the Great Powers in Anatolia and the Transcaucasus.
