The Unburied Past: The Book

The Unburied Past:
Denial of the Armenian Genocide in American and French Politics

by Dr. Michael Herron

This book undertakes the first in-depth comparative study of the recent debates in American and French politics confronting Turkish official denial of the Armenian genocide of 1915-16 in which approximately 1.5 million Armenians died in a genocide perpetrated by the Young Turk Ottoman government during the First World War. There are various reasons why this subject remains a focus of interest. This is a genocide that occurred a century ago. It is denied by Turkey, the successor state to the perpetrator state, the Ottoman Empire. Conversely, it is affirmed by the Armenian diaspora, the state of Armenia and other states.
