Reviews

"An outstanding work of historiography. Lewy approaches the standard histories on the Armenian Question using a valuable, but usually neglected, tool--he checks the sources used, targeting scholarship on all sides of the issue."--Slavic Review "At last, nearly a century after the ghastly events following the deportation of the Armenian population of Eastern Anatolia in 1915-16, a carefully balanced and scrupulous fair stidy, presenting an analysis of the accounts of both sides has finally appeared."--Middle East Policy "A welcome contribution that revisits this historical event thoroughly and objecitvely. Lewy's book is likely to become a must-read for the students of Middle Eastern history and politics."--Insight Turkey "This is an important book because it presents a much-needed corrective to the one-sided view that many have of the Armenian deportations and massacres. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the question of what really happened to the Ottoman Armenians in 1915."--Middle East Journal "A very significant contribution to a long-standing historiographical debate over what happened to the Armenians during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. Although Lewy's analysis is certainly not going to constitute the definitive answer, there is no other comparable work that so objectively and thoroughly reviews and analyzes so many different sources on both sides of this bitterly divisive issue."--International Journal of Middle East Studies "Guenter Lewy is a greatly respected American historian, whose books have shed light on versions of history that risked becoming set, and stifling future research. He has now turned his attention to the Armenian massacres of 1915, a subject encrusted with fossilized venom. His book, which has Olympian fair-mindedness as well as thorough knowledge of the various sources, now replaces everything else."--Norman Stone "An outstanding work of historiography.
