ARMENIA AND THE NEAR EAST
by Fridtjof Nansen
The present book, Armenia and the Near East, depicts F. Nansen's journey to the Near East and particularly to Armenia, his impressions and eyewitness accounts. This book not only displays a tragic period of the modern history of the Armenian people, it also describes the Armenian massacres which "far exceeds any we know in history, both in their extent and their appalling cruelty". He writes: "No one can study the story of this remarkable people without being profoundly moved by their tragic fate".
