Introducing new proof from greater than six hundred mystery Ottoman records, this publication demonstrates in remarkable element that the Armenian Genocide and the expulsion of Greeks from the past due Ottoman Empire resulted from an reliable attempt to rid the empire of its Christian matters. providing those formerly inaccessible records besides specialist context and research, Taner Akçam's such a lot authoritative paintings to this point is going deep contained in the bureaucratic equipment of Ottoman Turkey to teach how a demise empire embraced genocide and ethnic cleansing.
Although the deportation and killing of Armenians used to be across the world condemned in 1915 as a "crime opposed to humanity and civilization," the Ottoman govt initiated a coverage of denial that continues to be maintained through the Turkish Republic. The case for Turkey's "official historical past" rests on records from the Ottoman imperial information, to which entry has been seriously constrained until eventually lately. it's this very resource that Akçam now makes use of to overturn the legitimate narrative.
The records offered the following attest to a late-Ottoman coverage of Turkification, the target of which used to be at least the unconventional demographic transformation of Anatolia. for this reason, approximately one-third of Anatolia's 15 million humans have been displaced, deported, expelled, or massacred, destroying the ethno-religious variety of an historic cultural crossroads of East and West, and paving the way in which for the Turkish Republic.
By uncovering the vital roles performed via demographic engineering and assimilation within the Armenian Genocide, this booklet will essentially switch how this crime is known and exhibit that actual destruction isn't the simply point of the genocidal process.
