About the author

Deirdre Holding and her husband, Nicholas, first visited Armenia in 2001, as ordinary tourists. She was closely involved in the preparation of the first two editions of Armenia with Nagorno Karabagh, written by Nicholas, and after he died in 2008 she took over the authorship for the third and now the fourth edition, continuing to visit the country regularly. She is not a member of the Armenian diaspora and can therefore write about the country objectively. Having originally visited as a tourist she knows which aspects need particular explanation for the general tourist but also covers the country in enough detail for the guidebook to be useful to members of the Armenian diaspora.

Review by Vahan
It is incredible and unbelievable to read such a detailed and informative travel book by a nonarmenian author.

I am so humbled and touched and I would like to meet Mrs Holding, if she would give me the opportunity to congratulate her for the excellent work.
