Black Garden Aflame: Introduced by Artyom Tonoyan

Sunday, January 9th, 2022

ACOM Special Presentation !! 

 This was an in-person meeting that took place at the St. Paul Merriam Park Library on January 8th 2022 starting at 3PM.

Artyom Tonoyan introduced his edited book of Russian news articles about Nagorno-Karabagh. Artyom talked about the development of the book and presented some intersting insights into the background of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabagh. He indicated that he had read, either in the original or in rigorously translated Russian, accounts of the conflict over the last 30 years. His expert take on the region's Geo-Political climate was extremely interesting for the attendees. 

The edited collection was entitled "Black Garden Aflame: The Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict in the Soviet and Russian Press" The present collection of articles – carefully translated, edited, and culled from a vast repository of Russian-language press curated by East View – presents in book form for the first time in English some of the most important material that has appeared from 1988 to the present.

Artyom gave the attendees some important perspective on the Russian position and some interesting but discouraging commentary on the future direction of the conflict in this area. There was a brief Q and A session following the formal presentation.

The book is available through  https://www.eastviewpress.com/resources/books/black-garden-aflame/.

Pending review and acceptance, a video of the presentation may be available upon request. Keep posted on this site for further details.
