The newest issue of the Armenian Review was recently published in March 2016. Articles appearing in this issue range from the examination of the Armenian Diaspora through the eyes of Michael Arlen’s literature, to the infamous trial of Misak Torlakian for his role in the assassination of former Minister of International Affairs to the then-independent republic of Azerbaijan. Also included are two articles dealing with Armenian-Turkish relations and diplomacy. George Aghjayan took our cover photo on April 24, 2015 during a demonstration in Taksim Square, Istanbul.
