Author Michael Boyajian’s latest book is dedicated to his wife, Jeri Wagner, and the 1.5 million Armenians who perished in the genocide, including his great-grandfather, Garabed Kulhanjian, Poughkeepsie Journal reports.

“Roman Armenia: A Study In Survival” is about Armenia’s 500-year history for survival with the Roman Empire. The Fishkill resident, a retired attorney and former human rights judge, said the period in history is not one that has been broadly investigated.

New book traces history of Armenian Genocide

The Armenian Mirror Spectator

Boyajian detailed the 500 year relationship between Rome and Armenia that laid the groundwork for Armenian geopolitics.  That policy was to confront invaders but not to the point of extinction.  This refutes the Turkish notion that the Armenians were threatening Turkish rule bringing the genocide on themselves.

 
The Armenian Observer

The book provides all readers from teens to adults, not just academics, with an excellent guide through civilizations... Michael Boyajian proves his thesis about the relationship of the Roman Empire and Armenia and its quest to survive and secondly he details the impossible rationale of the Turkish regimes that in 1915 the Armenians were equipped to overthrow the Ottoman Empire.  --- Gary A. Kulhanjian, Social Historian

Chris Sorochin of WUSB says, The fact that you wrote it makes it interesting to me... interesting... no one had ever written a book on the subject before.

AGBU Book Talk

On June 7 Michael Boyajian did a Skype book talk before the Armenian Virtual College, AGBU on his new book Roman Armenia: A Study In Survival. The discussion was organized by Marina Khachaturyan, Education Program Coordinator at Armenian Virtual College, AGBU and a student Aram Agajanian.

Mr Boyajian detailed the five hundred year relationship between Rome and Armenia focusing on the confrontation between Tigranes The Great and Pompey The Great and the subsequent accord between them that laid the groundwork for Armenian geopolitics that would last through Armenia's Roman period ensuring that Armenians would be one of the few ancient people to survive into modern times.

Boyajian stated that this policy was to confront invaders but not to the point of extinction and lasted into modern times.  It enabled Armenia to survive conflicts with Parthians, Persians, Russians and Turks as well as the Romans.

This policy refutes the Turkish notion that the Armenians were threatening Turkish rule forcing the genocide upon thenselves.  The Armenians would never risk annihilation under a policy that lasted two millennia.

One student challenged Boyajian's premise but the author pointed out that the United States has maintained a similar foreign policy for 75 years that has kept Russia and America at peace and the world free from nuclear destruction.  He than asked the class if any Armenian had risked extinction in an uprising against Russian occupiers in the last century.  The answer was no.  And as in Roman times when Armenia balanced between Parthia in the East and Rome in the West today the nation does the same with Russia and the U.S.with the new Armenian president first visiting Putin and in the near future Trump.

The book is the first of its kind in the U.S although the topic is well covered in Armenia.  Mr Boyajian is a retired attorney and former human rights judge.  He and his wife live in the Hudson Valley where they enjoy their Cicero inspired library and garden with their three cats.
