Editorial Reviews

Review


"The positive effects of comparative history are evident throughout this collection of essays. It is not only the sophistication of Holocaust history on which these authors have drawn, but the large body of scholarship on post-1945 genocidal events as well." --Slavic Review


"Provides invaluable analytical perspectives on the Armenian Genocide that educators may use to help students gain a more complete understanding. The volume's careful attention to the complexity of identity construction in the Ottoman Empire contributes important nuance to the Armenian Genocide narrative, highlighting dynamics that transcend Turkish-Armenian relations within the empire." --World History Connected


"The book as a whole is indeed something much larger than the sum of its parts...This volume presents new and important research that will make it required reading for any scholar in the field or on any course syllabus on the topic." --The Historian


"As a scholarly addition to the understanding of the Armenian genocide, the late Ottoman Empire, and the beginning of the Turkish Republic--A Question of Genocide succeeds." --H-Net


"Nearly a century on from the attempted Ottoman destruction of the Armenians, Turkish politics of denial, on the one hand, and an Armenian mythic representation of a singular Turkish guilt, on the other, have repeatedly sabotaged chances for dialogue. Yet in this book a group of leading historians from both sides of the divide, and beyond, demonstrate that the reality of genocide can be examined in its multi-causal dimensions not only without partisanship but in recognition of a shared history. A Question of Genocide can be read as a breakthrough historical study providing a contextualized, nuanced yet sensitive set of interpretations of an Armenian-but also wider Ottoman- tragedy. Equally, however, it may come to be remembered as a timely intervention on the path to reconciliation between post-Ottoman peoples." -Mark Levene, University of Southampton


"Although the Armenian genocide is probably the clearest case of that crime apart from the Holocaust, for political reasons it has been one of the more controversial. A Question of Genocide offers valuable new studies of this very important topic, written by some of the leading experts in the field, including both Armenian and Turkish scholars. It carries on the work of the courageous Turkish Armenian writer Hrant Dink, who was assassinated in Istanbul in 2007."-Ben Kiernan, author of Blood and Soil: A World History of Genocide and Extermination from Sparta to Darfur

A term invented by the Russians. Before the German purification of Jewish Europe Turkey murdered Armenians who in time of government fallouts failed to aid the country in support.
