"The power of Morgenthau's book to move and instruct us eighty years after its publication, " writes Roger Smith in his introduction, "is intimately connected with its truthfulness about the atrocities and the men behind them, but also about the capacities of humans to commit enormous evil with a light heart." The memoir also documents the beginnings of U.S. interest in international human rights as well as patterns and symptoms of genocidal tendencies, foreshadowing most notably the Nazi Holocaust."
This edition brings back into print the classic memoir by the American ambassador to the Ottoman Empire who not only documented but also tried to stop the genocide of the Armenian people.

Keep in mind the following when you read the other reviews posted here:
"The French National Assembly has formally recognised as genocide the slaughter of more than a million Armenians living in the Ottoman empire between 1915 and 1917."
While persuading his associates that a Jewish holocaust would be tolerated by the west stated...
"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister. April 27, 1994 on the floor of the Knesset in response to a TV interview of the Turkish Ambassador
"It was not war. It was most certainly massacre and genocide, something the world must remember... We will always reject any attempt to erase its record, even for some political advantage."
Addressing the US House of Representatives.
"Mr. Speaker, with mixed emotions we mark the 50th anniversary of the Turkish genocide of the Armenian people. In taking notice of the shocking events in 1915, we observe this anniversary with sorrow in recalling the massacres of Armenians and with pride in saluting those brave patriots who survived to fight on the side of freedom during World War I."
-- Congressional Record, pg. 8890
Additional books I recommend:
Peter Balakian's "The Burning Tigris" and "Black Dog of Fate"
All over the world for many centuries, religious and ethnic intolerance have caused much pain and death to humanity. We should never forgive or forget any holocaust or genocide, no matter how large or how small, and the world's leaders and governments should do everything and anything in their power to recognize and prevent such atrocities in the future.
The thing that really got my goat was the insurance incident. The Turks came to Morgenthau and told him, Well, the Armenians are dead. Their heirs are dead. So their life insurance awards revert to the state. Get them for us. [Shudder] What gall!
