For some contemporary Armenians in diaspora, faith in history is energized by political organizations fighting for Turkish acknowledgment of responsibility for the Ottoman massacres. But for most, belief in the past serves as an underpinning for the mechanisms of family and community. Portraing the relation between religion and nationalism in concrete terms, Faith in History also investigates the increasingly common experience of diaspora. This book evokes the ways in which perceptions of nation and homeland shift and evolve.
