Kort biografi
Historian and sociologist Taner Akçam received his doctorate in 1995 from the University of Hanover, with a dissertation on The Turkish National Movement and the Armenian Genocide Against the Background of the Military Tribunals in Istanbul Between 1919 and 1922.

Akçam was born in the province of Ardahan, Turkey, in 1953. He became interested in Turkish politics at an early age. As the editor-in-chief of a student political journal, he was arrested in 1976 and sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment. Amnesty International adopted him as a prisoner of conscience. A year later, he escaped to Germany, where he received political asylum.

In 1988 he started working as Research Scientist in Sociology at the Hamburg Institute for Social Research. His first research topic was the history of political violence and torture in the late Ottoman Empire and early Republic of Turkey.

Between 2000 and 2002 Akçam was Visiting Professor of History at University of Michigan. He worked also as Visiting Associate Professor at the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at University of Minnesota. He has been a member of the history department at Clark University since 2008.

This book was very interesting...I will have to admit that I knew nothing about the genocide on the Armenian people. But, in an attempt to provide the reader with every single detail leading up to the genocide events, the author had me lost, confused and bored. It was very difficult to finish reading the book because of such.

An excellent, lucid account painstakingly researched.

From the first scholar of Turkish origin to publicly acknowledge the Armenian Genocide, an account that reveals Ottoman plans for the Armenian Genocide and ethnic cleansing and subsequent Turkification. This book utilizes Ottoman imperial archives to make its case.

This is a very important book. The violent massacre of the Armenians was a tragedy on par with the Holocaust, yet the perpetrators not only escaped real justice, but a century later still get to deny the crime! While portions are heart-rending, this book is not really well written. For scholarship, it is quite important but for popular consumption - not really a "good read."

It is definately worth plowing through.
