Description
 




The book represents an earthquake in genocide studies,
particularly in the field of Armenian Genocide research. A unique feature
of the Armenian Genocide has been the long-standing efforts of successive
Turkish governments to deny its historicity and to hide the documentary
evidence surrounding it. This book provides a major clarification
of the often blurred lines between facts and truth in regard to these
events. The authenticity of the killing orders signed by Ottoman
Interior Minister Talat Pasha and the memoirs of the Ottoman bureaucrat
Naim Efendi have been two of the most contested topics in this regard. The
denialist school has long argued that these documents and memoirs were all
forgeries, produced by Armenians to further their claims. Taner Akçam
provides the evidence to refute the basis of these claims and demonstrates
clearly why the documents can be trusted as authentic, revealing the
genocidal intent of the Ottoman-Turkish government towards its Armenian
population. As such, this work removes a cornerstone from the denialist
edifice, and further establishes the historicity of the Armenian Genocide.
