Association for Slavic, East European, amp Eurasian StudiesA Financial Times Summer Books 2015 selectionOne of Financial Times FT.com Best Books in History 2015, chosen Tony BarberIn recent years scholars of Ottoman history have published a number of path breaking, award winning academic studies documenting the annihilation of the Armenians in 1915 Published on the one hundredth anniversary of that horrible event, Ronald Grigor Suny s monograph stands out as another superb work, in this case the best narrative account explaining why, when, and how the Armenian genocide occurred Marc David Baer, H NationalismAn authoritative examination of unspeakable horrors D eeply researched, fair minded Suny creates a compelling narrative of vengeance and terror Kirkus The centenary of the Armenian Genocide has raised the diplomatic temperature and precipitated many books Ronald Suny s is the best of them Balanced, scholarly, and harrowing, it should be read by all serious students of modern history Dominic Green, Weekly StandardSuny is admirably dispassionate in explaining the particular circumstances that led the Ottoman government to embark on a policy of mass extermination Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times W hat distinguishes Suny s scholarship is a scrupulous attention to context and the genuine imperial anxiety of the Young Turks They Can Live in the Desert but Nowhere Else a title taken from another Talat diktat is a fair minded account Unsparing in depicting the viciousness of the killing, forced conversions and kidnapping of children and young women, it is rigorous in its choice of language and nuance, generous in its empathy but implacable in its conclusions David Gardner, Financial TimesA tremendously powerful, scrupulously balanced, rigorous and humane account of a tragedy that still casts a shadow over the modern state of Turkey It is likely to become the definitive reference book on the subject for years to come Justin Marozzi, Spectator They Can Live in the Desert but Nowhere Else will very likely be the standard account in English for the 21st Century of the Armenian Genocide and its broader setting The event itself was the first major genocide in what was to be an entire century of genocides, and Suny is keenly aware of the lessons it can teach about the horrors it initiated The book is strongly recommended Steve Donoghue, Open Letters MonthlyThe centennial of the Armenian Genocide has and will generate many scholarly studies and publications to commemorate this tragic event, the first genocide of the twentieth century Prominent historian Ron Suny s excellent study stands out for the quality of its research, its judiciousness, and its breadth and depth This is an invaluable, illuminating, and well written book a must read Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New YorkJust how did the Armenian Genocide happen One extreme view is that the intrinsically murderous Young Turk leaders had made up their minds long before 1915 and were simply biding their time At the opposite end, apologists have seen no ideological intent whatsoever, arguing instead that the genocide was an inevitable, short term reaction to Armenian nationalist activity Against both views, Ronald Sunys illuminating and impeccable narrative argues that an affective disposition that developed among Turkish nationalists over many years led to the slaughter This cuts to the heart of the matter Halil Berktay, Sabanci University, IstanbulI dont think its an exaggeration to say that there is no one else in the world who is better able than Ronald Suny to provide a one volume history of the Armenian Genocide This is the best book we have on the subject The narrative is fluid, the writing is crystal clear and engaging, and the scholarship is impeccable Scrupulously fair minded, Suny deepens our understanding of the causes of the genocide without, however, rationalizing it Norman Naimark, author of Stalins GenocidesThis is an excellent comprehensive history of the Armenian Genocidenuanced, balanced, authoritative, and based on a wide range of sources and perspectives The interpretation is state of the art and the book is written with Ronald Sunys customary clarity and precision Donald Bloxham, author of The Final Solution A GenocideRonald Suny treats the Armenian Genocide in a balanced and thoughtful way, avoiding the pitfalls of both nationalist history and denial He shows empathy and respect for the victims while at the same time explaining why the Young Turks did what they did, and why they thought they had to do it Erik Jan Zrcher, author of Turkey A Modern History "They Can Live in the Desert but Nowhere Else": A History of the Armenian Genocide (Human Rights and Crimes against Humanity)
