“Armenians around the World: Migration and Transnationality” (Peter Lang International Academic Publishers, 2015, 280p), edited by Dr. Arthur Mkrtichyan, explores Armenian migration around the world, including the interrelation between domestic communities in Armenia and Armenian communities elsewhere. It takes a close look at the motivation to migrate and the specifics of Armenian communities in different EU countries and the US. Authors from Armenia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, and the US use various approaches to the subject such as case-study, in-depth interviews, surveys, comparative and network analysis, as well as migration and transnationalism theories. The collection offers new insights into local Armenian community structure, lifestyle, communication and adaptation, social, economic and gender aspects of migration.
