Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A History of International Human Rights and Forgotten Heroes

In this national bestseller, the critically acclaimed author Peter Balakian brings us a riveting narrative of the massacres of the Armenians in the 1890s and of the Armenian Genocide in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Using rarely seen archival documents and remarkable first-person accounts, Balakian presents the chilling history of how the Turkish government implemented the first modern genocide behind the cover of World War I. And in the telling, he resurrects an extraordinary lost chapter of American history.

Awarded the Raphael Lemkin Prize for the best scholarly book on genocide by the Institute for Genocide Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice/CUNY Graduate Center.

Synopsis:

A "New York Times" bestseller, this masterful history of the Armenian massacres of the 1890s and the genocide of 195 is told from the view of American involvement in what was the first major international human rights movement in American history.

About the Author

Peter Balakian teaches at Colgate University, where he is a Donald M. and Constance H. Rebar Professor of the Humanities.
