What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The Sherlock Holmes of Armenian Genocide.” (Eric Weitz, The City College of New York, USA)

“This is an extraordinarily important work for those who understand its significance. Taner Akçam has quite literally blown the Turkish narrative as itself ‘fake news’.” (Mark Levene, University of Southampton, UK)

“Taner Akçam’s careful edition of an important Ottoman bureaucrat’s memoirs and related sources is a signal contribution to the contentious debate about state policy and practice towards Armenians during the First World War. It is essential reading for all those interested in Genocide and Human Rights Studies.” (Dirk Moses, University of Sydney, Australia)
