Approximately one million Armenian Christians were killed in 1915-16 under the auspices of the Ottoman government. For nearly a century this genocide has either been ignored or not recognized for what it was. In this book Donald Bloxham provides an explanation for why it happened and why it has subsequently been overlooked, and offers a new interpretation which places the genocide firmly in the context of international history.
