The Armenian Genocide: History, Politics, Ethics
Richard G. Hovannisian
Palgrave Macmillan, Apr 15, 1992 - History - 362 pages
Beneath the shadow of the First World War, the Young Turk government orchestrated the massacre of over one million Armenians in Turkey between the years 1915 and 1918. Virtually erased from public memory and forgotten out of political convenience, this attempt to destroy the Armenian population is a prototypical example of genocide which has been repeated throughout the twentieth century. The Armenian Genocide explains the historical, cultural and political conditions which led to this tragedy and to the subsequent claims that it never actually took place.
