AN INCONVENIENT GENOCIDE: Who Now Remembers the Armenians?
by Geoffrey Robertson
The controversial Armenian genocide will come to a head on 24 April 2015, when Armenians worldwide will commemorate its centenary and Turkey will deny that it took place, claiming that the deaths of over half of the Armenian race were justified. Geoffrey Robertson QC proves beyond reasonable doubt that the horrific events in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 constitute genocide. He explains how democracies can deal with genocide denial without infringing free speech, and makes a major contribution to understanding and preventing this worst of all crimes. His renowned powers of advocacy are on full display as he condemns all those - from Sri Lanka to the Sudan, from Old Anatolia to modern Syria and Iraq - who try to justify the mass murder of children and civilians in the name of military necessity or religious fervour.
