Christopher J. Walker (born 1942) is a British historian and author.

He worked in Sotheby's department of historical and literary manuscripts. After the winning of Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship he wrote a book on Armenian history which was reissued in 1990. In 1975 with the support of "Minority Rights Group" he published "The Armenians" report (co-author - prof. David Marshall Lang).[1] In November, 1989 at the Oxford University Walker had a lecture on the modern history of Armenia. He has also written several books and articles on history of Armenia. One of his most famous works is Armenia: The Survival of a Nation book, which was appreciated as an "excellent history of Greater Armenia"[2] and "a balanced presentation" of the events during the Armenian Massacres of 1895-1918.[3]

After a long-time research in archives, in 2003 Walker completed his Life of Oliver Baldwin book about a soldier, statesman, and journalist, the son of a Conservative Prime Minister, who became a Labour member of British Parliament.
