Description

The Armenian Genocide was one of the greatest atrocities of the twentieth century, an episode in which up to 1.5 million Armenians lost their lives. In this major new history, the renowned historian Raymond Kevorkian provides an authoritative account of the origins, events and consequences of the years 1915 and 1916. He considers the role that the Armenian Genocide played in the construction of the Turkish nation state and Turkish identity, as well as exploring the ideologies of power, rule and state violence. Crucially, he examines the consequences of the violence against the Armenians, the implications of deportations and attempts to bring those who committed the atrocities to justice. Kevorkian offers a detailed and meticulous record, providing an authoritative analysis of the events and their impact upon the Armenian community itself, as well as the development of the Turkish state. This important book will serve as an indispensable resource to historians of the period, as well as those wishing to understand the history of genocidal violence more generally.

Review

'This is the most comprehensive book to date on the Armenian Genocide of 1915. In this detailed account, Raymond Kevorkian describes the process which drove 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire to their deaths.'
Le Monde

'This mighty volume constitutes the most complete summary to date.'
Histoforum, Paris

‘… [a] magisterial study… Kevorkian’s book stands alone for its thoroughness. Indispensible for those interested in genocide, this volume will be the starting point for any future study of the Armenian genocide.’
