The biographies and writings in the book—by statesmen, intellectuals, military commanders, and rank-and-file fedayis (guerrillas)—reflect the arch of Armenian history from the 1890’s to the 1940’s. They contain not merely points of view but larger ideas, ideologies, worldviews, and hard-won life lessons that energized and guided the lives of individual members of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF/Dashnaktsoutiun), the collective outlook of the party, as well as the political movement it engendered. Those involved in the affairs of today’s Armenia and diaspora would do well to consider the lessons and insights contained within. The past, after all, has much to teach those seeking to build the future.
At 150-plus pages, Voices from the Past is based on a collection of “Voices from the Past” columns that appeared regularly in the Armenian Weekly for roughly 15 months, from the fall of 1990 to the winter of 1991. The columns consisted of a brief biography and passage from the writings of well-known figures of the Armenian liberation movement of the late 19th and early 20th century.
The biographies and writings of several prominent figures have been added to the book, including those of Karekin Njdeh, Arshavir Shiragian, and Soghomon Tehlirian; moreover, nearly all of the biographies have been updated, and some excerpts have been revised or entirely replaced with more pertinent ones.
Vahe Habeshian is a longtime editor and the director of publications at MarketingProfs.com. He was an editor at the Armenian Weekly during some exciting times, including the liberation of Artsakh (Karabagh) and the initial years of Armenian independence.
Voices from the Past is available for purchase on the www.Hairenik.com as a hardcover for $25.00 or paperback for $15.00, or as an e-book for $3.99 on Amazon, Kindle, iTunes, and Google Play stores.
