Worth a look 11 décembre 2006
Par Early Music Fan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am astonished by the other reviews of this book: by the name-calling, by the character-assassination, by the slander, by the claims that a scholar at a top American school is only "mediocre" in Turkey (!).

The other reviewers prove the point of this book, and other books on the subject, are trying to make: that many people, especially Turks, are not psychologically prepared to have a calm, intelligent discussion about this topic, are not able to admit even the slightest possibility that the Turkish government may be, even to the smallest extent, in the wrong. It's a valid point.

Genocide From the Perspective of Perpetuators 26 octobre 2004
Par ESMIKCIH - Publié sur
Format: Broché
What Turkish scholars in general think about the issue of Armenian genocide is well-known: It was not a genocide. Akcam is perhaps the first Turkish academician who says the opposite. This is one good reason why this book needs to be read, especially by the Turkish people.
But why is this important for the others as well? There are already dozens of books about the Armenian genocide. Does it make a difference to read about the genocide by a Turkish scholar? The book shows it very convincingly that it does. Here are the reasons.
First, the book gives an account of the genocide from the perspective of the perpetuators. There are books written by Turkey-supported academicians but those books do not accept that the Ottomans were the perpetuators. They solely try to knock-out the arguments of the other side. Therefore, we need to know the perspective of the perpetuator and Akcam gives this along with the psychological background of the perpetuators in addition to the historical and sociological backgrounds.
Second, he succesfully shows how that psychological background the Turkish society had in that era still hunts today's Turkish society pervasively. This is a significant reason why Turkish society does not want to hear about the genocide. Importantly, Akcam suggests some social-engineering solutions for both sides based on the continuation of the past and present psyche of the Turkish society. This is a significant reason why today's Armenians need to know what Turkish society is up to- psychologically- and try to strip off the stereotypes they have about Turks.
Third and fourth, as the book tells it convincingly, the Armenian genocide is not an issue that should be left in the dusty pages of the Ottoman history. There is an administrative continuation from Ittihat ve Terakki which committed the genocide to the foundation of the Turkish Republic. Interestingly, Akcam presents the evidence for how the founders of the republic (e.g. M.Kemal Ataturk) in fact admitted the massacres back in the days although because of political reasons. Akcam gives further evidence for the genocide from Turkish resources as well.
As a psychologist I have reservations about the psychoanalytic points but they do not cast a shadow on the value of the book. For those who are interested in the Armenian genocide it is a valuable book. For those who are interested in genocide-psychology studies, there are plenty of food for thoughts. And it is a must read for Turkish people.

Professor Taner Akcam - The most famous turkish scholar to fight for the Recognition of the Armenian Genocide 9 mai 2006
Par Leon Sark - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The world-famous turkish historian Taner Akcam was the first leading scholar in Turkey to officially struggle for the Recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the turkish government.

Due to the fact that any mention of the Armenian Genocide has always been considered a crime in Turkey, Professor Akcam eventually had to flee into exile and leave his homeland behind.

Today the number of turkish historians struggling for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide is ever-growing. They are demanding from the turkish government an end to its denial-campaign and its recognition of this vast crime against humanity.

"From Empire to Republic" can be considered one of the most important books concerning the Armenian Genocide. After all, it was the first ever written book on the Armenian Genocide by a turkish historian.

Not sure what I was thinking 25 février 2013

The book itself was made like a small textbook with small font and paperback paper quality. If it weren't for the small font I might have enjoyed it more. It was very dry.

Well written, but one-sided 1 décembre 2006
Par Student of History - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Professor Akcam does not take into account the effects of the Armenian Revolt, which lasted from the 1890s to 1920. Armenian revolutionary groups, the Hinchaks and Dashnaks, launched a campaign of terror against Ottoman officials and citizens. They began killing Muslims 20 years before the Armenian deportations took place in 1915. Also, from 1915 to 1920, Armenian soldiers, rebels and gangs massacred a half-million Turks, Kurds and Azeris. If we are willing to call what happened to the Armenians a genocide, then what do we call what the Armenians did to the Muslims?

In April 2006, Professor Akcam made the unbelievable statement on PBS that the massacre of Muslims by Armenians was "legend." He is either sadly misinformed about the history of his own country, or he indeed has become a mouthpiece for a political agenda that chooses to ignore historical reality.

Anyone who seeks to learn about the Armenian/Ottoman tragedy should start with a book published in 1964 by the Armenian scholar, Louise Nalbandian: "Armenian Revolutionary Movements." She wrote her book shortly before the Armenian Diaspora began to politicize their claims to genocide. It doesn't matter to me whether a person believes the Armenians were victims of genocide in 1915. What matters to me is that "academics" such as Professor Akcam insist on discussing only one side of this tragic story, and continue to pretend that Armenians did no wrong.

Horrible atrocities were committed on all sides; it is the responsibility of Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan to deal with this legacy. In the U.S. and Europe, this issue has become too politicized. Anyone who disagrees with the Armenian viewpoint is automatically labeled a "genocide denier." Unfortunately, most of the media and politicians have naively chosen to support the Armenian genocide claims without conducting their own research. And they choose to believe that "scholars" such as Professor Akcam are basing their writings on thorough research that takes the Armenian revolutionary movement into account; such is not the case.
