“The former president of Armenia explores how comparably tiny political entities punch well above their weight on the international stage, arguing that smallness is a strength. Indeed, smaller scales allow greater responsiveness, ability to experiment and innovate, and measure political changes more rapidly than their larger, more ponderous counterparts. There are, of course, downsides to smallness, not the least of which are navigating an international stage that is designed for and benefits larger states. Sarkissian’s book is said to be part-memoir and part-homage to Armenia, a country very much on my list of places to visit in the coming years,” Diplomatic Courier Contributor and Director of the Mike Rogers Center for Intelligence & Global Affairs at the Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress, and a George Mason University National Security Institute Fellow Joshua C. Huminski said in his article for the Diplomatic Courier.

“Armen Sarkissian PhD is a world-renowned theoretical physicist, diplomat, politician and businessman. Armenia's former president (2018-22) and prime minister (1996-7), he has served as head of the University of Cambridge's Eurasia Centre, and held top positions at Harvard and Chicago Universities, the University of London and the World Economic Forum,” Hurst Publisher said about the ex-president of Armenia.

“Part memoir, part manifesto, it is a stirring insight into the world’s oldest Christian country, which is at once an ancient civilisation, a small state and a global nation,” Hurst added in the description of the book.
