Denial of Violence

Ottoman Past, Turkish Present, and Collective Violence against the Armenians, 1789-2009

Fatma Muge Gocek

  • Research on the collective violence against Armenians almost always concentrates on events between 1915-1917, this book instead considers the violence against Armenians preceding and succeeding these years.
  • Employs a systematic analysis of over 300 memoirs in the Turkish language to show how a narrative of denial was constructed over the course of history.
