Starting with the earliest immigrants before World War I, this work plots the ups and downs of the Armenian community of Syracuse, New York, up to the present. The book describes how one small community experienced the formative events of American- Armenian history. It traces the institutional developments of the early years-the establishment of churches, cultural organizations, and political parties. It follows the ruptures of the 1930s-the advent of the pro-Soviet Harachtimagan movement, the assassination of Archbishop Tourian in New York City, and the split within the Armenian Apostolic Church throughout the United States. It stays with the community though World War II, the Cold War, and more recent developments. Drawing on numerous interviews, a wealth of letters, minutes, and other documents, as well as firsthand experience, the author delivers an intimate biography of the Syracuse family.
