Reviews

"Hoist on the ramparts of political expediency, the Armenian genocide of 1915 continues to haunt the corridors of power. But one of this volume's great strengths is the many ways in which it moves beyond the legal, the political and the sheer hypocritical to illuminate the lasting personal and cultural legacies of what it means to be an Armenian, 100 years on from catastrophe." - Mark Levene, Reader in Comparative History, University of Southampton, UK

"Alexis Demirdjian's The Armenian Genocide Legacy brings together a fine, diverse cast of scholars. Historical reconstruction, legal analysis and political, artistic, and cultural commentary combine to powerful effect. They highlight the importance of a past that refuses to go away despite official Turkish denial and 'scholarly' collusion in that denial." - Donald Bloxham, University of Edinburgh, UK
