Synopsis

One hundred years after the deportations and mass murder of Armenians Greeks Assyrians and other peoples in the final years of the Ottoman Empire the history of the Armenian genocide is a victim of historical distortion state-sponsored falsification and deep divisions between Armenians and Turks. Working together for the first time Turkish Armenian and other scholars present here a compelling reconstruction of what happened and why. This volume gathers the most up-to-date scholarship on Armenian genocide looking at how the event has been written about in Western and Turkish historiographies; what was happening on the eve of the catastrophe; portraits of the perpetrators; detailed accounts of the massacres; how the event has been perceived in both local and international contexts including World War I; and reflections on the broader implications of what happened then. The result is a comprehensive work that moves beyond nationalist master narratives and offers a more complete understanding of this tragic event.
