Remembrance and denial : the case of the Armenian genocide( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Armenian Genocide that began in World War I, during the drive to transform the plural Ottoman Empire into a monoethnic Turkey, removed a people from its homeland and erased most evidence of their three-thousand-year-old material and spiritual culture. For the rest of this century, changing world events, calculated silence, and active suppression of memory have overshadowed the initial global outrage and have threatened to make this calamity "the forgotten genocide" of world history." "This volume squarely confronts the denial of the Armenian Genocide by the Turkish government, which has expended considerable political and financial resources to repress the facts surrounding this event and even enlisted American and European pseudo-academics to rationalize the issue. Fourteen leading scholars from the United States, Canada, France, England, Germany, and Israel here examine the Armenian Genocide from a variety of perspectives to refute those efforts and show how remembrance and denial have shaped perceptions of the event."--BOOK JACKET
The Armenian genocide : history, politics, ethics( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beneath the shandow of the First World War, the Young Turk government orchestrated the massacre of over one million Armenians in the Turkish Empire between the years 1915 and 1918. Virtually erased from public memory and forgotten out of political convenience, this attempt to destroy the Armenian population is a prototypical example of genocide which has been repeated throughout the twentieth century. The Armenian Genocide explains the historical, cultural and political conditions which led to this tragedy and to the subsequent claims that it never actually took place."--BOOK JACKET. "Edited by a leading expert on Armenia, this collection presents a multi-disciplinary investigation and interpretation of the Armenian Genocide. Each contributor examines the event from a unique perspective; methods of study include archival research, political analysis, field work, comparative investigation of genocide and analysis of the literary response. Through exploration of the history, politics and ethics of the Armenian Genocide, this book sheds light on one of the most profound and neglected events in twentieth-century history."--BOOK JACKET

The Armenian genocide : cultural and ethical legacies by Richard G Hovannisian( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World War I was a watershed, a defining moment, in Armenian history. Its effects were unprecedented in that it resulted in what no other war, invasion, or occupation had achieved in three thousand years of identifiable Armenian existence. This calamity was the physical elimination of the Armenian people and most of the evidence of their ever having lived on the great Armenian Plateau, to which the perpetrator side soon gave the new name of Eastern Anatolia. The bearers of an impressive martial and cultural history, the Armenians had also known repeated trials and tribulations, waves of massacre, captivity, and exile, but even in the darkest of times there had always been enough remaining to revive, rebuild, and go forward. This third volume in a series edited by Richard Hovannisian, the dean of Armenian historians, provides a unique fusion of the history, philosophy, literature, art, music, and educational aspects of the Armenian experience. It further provides a rich storehouse of information on comparative dimensions of the Armenian genocide in relation to the Assyrian, Greek and Jewish situations, and beyond that, paradoxes in American and French policy responses to the Armenian genocides. The volume concludes with a trio of essays concerning fundamental questions of historiography and politics that either make possible or can inhibit reconciliation of ancient truths and righting ancient wrongs." -- from book cover
Looking backward, moving forward : confronting the Armenian Genocide by Richard G Hovannisian( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The decades separating our new century from the Armenian Genocide, the prototype of modern-day nation-killings, have fundamentally changed the political composition of the region. Virtually no Armenians remain on their historic territories in what is today eastern Turkey. The Armenian people have been scattered about the world. And a small independent republic has come to replace the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic, which was all that was left of the homeland as the result of Turkish invasion and Bolshevik collusion in 1920. One element has remained constant. Notwithstanding the eloquent, compelling evidence housed in the United States National Archives and repositories around the world, successive Turkish governments have denied that the predecessor Young Turk regime committed genocide, and, like the Nazis who followed their example, sought aggressively to deflect blame by accusing the victims themselves.This volume argues that the time has come for Turkey to reassess the propriety of its approach, and to begin the process that will allow it move into a post-genocide era. The work includes "Genocide: An Agenda for Action," Gijs M. de Vries; "Determinants of the Armenian Genocide," Donald Bloxham; "Looking Backward and Forward," Joyce Apsel; "The United States Response to the Armenian Genocide," Simon Payaslian; "The League of Nations and the Reclamation of Armenian Genocide Survivors," Vahram L. Shemmassian; "Raphael Lemkin and the Armenian Genocide," Steven L. Jacobs; "Reconstructing Turkish Historiography of the Armenian Massacres and Deaths of 1915," Fatma Muge Go;cek; "Bitter-Sweet Memories; "The Armenian Genocide and International Law," Joe Verhoeven; "New Directions in Literary Response to the Armenian Genocide," Rubina Peroomian; "Denial and Free Speech," Henry C. Theriault; "Healing and Reconciliation," Ervin Staub; "State and Nation," Raffi K. Hovannisian."--Provided by publisher
Poetry and mysticism in Islam : the heritage of Rūmī by Giorgio Levi Della Vida( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mawlana Jalal al-Din Rumi was one of the greatest poets and mystics of the Islamic world. He was born in Balkh (Korasan) in AD 1207 and died in Konya (Turkey) in AD 1273. This book is an examination of his spiritual and literary heritage. As Annemarie Schimmel, the recipient of the Eleventh Giorgio Della Vida Award in Islamic Studies, has written, 'no other mystic and poet from the Islamic world is as well known in the West as Rumi', and she, more than any Western scholar, is his most celebrated and eloquent interpreter. The scholars who Professor Schimmel has invited to share in her tribute have all added new dimensions to an understanding of Rumi and to his impact on the Islamic world

The Persian presence in the Islamic world by Giorgio Levi Della Vida Conference( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteenth volume based on the Giorgio Levi Della Vida conference series at UCLA assesses the role played by the Iranian peoples in the development and consolidation of Islamic civilization. In his key chapter, Ehsan Yarshater casts fresh light on that role, challenging the view that, after reaching a climax in Baghdad in the ninth century, Islamic culture entered a period of stagnation and decline. In fact, he maintains, a new and remarkably creative phase began in Khurasan and Transoxania, symbolized by the adoption of Persian as the medium of literary expression. Persian literary and intellectual paradigms and a mystical world-view spread from Anatolia to India. By the mid-sixteenth century, they were being supported and cultivated in the three empires that encompassed the greater part of the Islamic world: the Ottoman, the Safavid, and the Mughal. Professor Yarshater also challenges some traditional assumptions and recent claims about the "Islamization of Persia" or "Persianization of Islam." In the chapters which follow, six distinguished scholars consider the historical, cultural, and religious aspects of the Persian presence in Islamic civilization
