Thus, based on a rich array of sources, this book outlines the role of the Armenian media in maintaining the identity of a group within a diaspora, numerous aspects of the historical memory and collective identity of the Armenians in Bulgaria, and the various factors that have impacted on their form and function in the present-day context.
