This book is the first serious attempt to write a popular history of the Armenian community of London. It is both creditable and readable, and the author sheds much light on many quirky and serious aspects of the London Armenian community. Written in a celebratory style, the author exalts community activists and seems optimistic about the future, a view not shared by all. This work follows Joan George's "Merchants in Exile: The Armenians of Manchester, England, 1835–1935" (Gomidas Institute, 2002).
