Thank you to everyone who recommended that I read Turkish scholar Taner Akcam’s historical analysis of the Armenian Genocide, A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility. Mr. Akcam’s book is a significant contribution to the field of Holocaust and Genocide studies. Thank you, Mr. Akcam, for your research and for speaking out.
If you want to gain insight into the events that led up to the Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks, I hope you will read A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility.
Here is a link to the book review that ran in the New York Times:

(P.S.: If you want to own the book, I’ve included a link to A Shameful Act, which is located under the Resource Links in the right column.)
