Editorial Reviews


'The Political Economy of Human Rights in Armenia confronts two-closely related research questions: why has democracy failed to effectively consolidate in Post-Soviet Armenia and why has Armenia failed to uphold human rights despite the government's formal domestic and international commitments to do so. Simon Payaslian's theoretical framework is grounded in an eclectic interdisciplinary approach that draws on the theoretical works of scholars working on human rights, democratization, political culture, and modernization from a variety of disciplines including political science and political economy, history and sociology. This book sheds light on what would be required, difficult though it may be, to consolidate democracy in Armenia, and will be important reading for scholars and senior undergraduates interested in human rights, democratization, modern Armenian politics and history.' - Professor Maureen S. Hiebert, Department of Political Science, University of Calgary; 'The Political Economy of Human Rights in Armenia is an objective and admirable piece of work, wide in its scope and detailed in its analysis, dealing with a difficult topic in a fair, honest and balanced way. As far as I know, this is the first serious study of the topic, a topic which needs elucidating both to serve the interests of the academic world as well as perhaps to shake up thinking in Armenia - a comprehensive and lucid book.' - Dennis R. Papazian, Founding Director of the Armenian Research Centre at the University of Michigan-Dearborn
