Review Of Armenian Studies
It is indeed a pleasure for us to publish another issue of the “Review of Armenian Studies”.
It has become a tradition that the first article of each issue is “Facts and Comments”. This article covers a period of about a year and relates the developments in Turkey concerning the Armenian question, Turkey-Armenia relations and Armenian genocide allegations.
Renowned American historian Prof. Justin McCarthy has authorized us to publish the text of the lecture he gave in Ankara on March 24, 2005 under the title “Armenian Uprisings and The Ottomans”. We are very grateful to him.
Assistant Prof Dr. Birsen Karaca, in her article “The Armenian Image Created in the Armenian Mass Media”, explains how Armenian extremists try to create an unfavorable image of Turkey and Turks by using the mass media.
Recent developments concerning the Armenian question caused publication of many books on this subject in Turkey. This issue contains three book reviews. The books in question are: The Deaths from Epidemic Disease in 1914-1918 by Prof. Hikmet Özdemir, Armenian incidents In French Diplomatic Documents 1914-1918 edited by Hasan Dilan and Armenian Activities in the Archive Documents, 1914-1918 published by the Turkish General Staff. The names of many other works concerning Armenians and the Armenian question can be found in the section titled Recent Books.
In order to facilitate researches into the Armenian question the Review of Armenian Studies is beginning with this issue to publish in full text a series of important relevant documents either in original form or translated into English.
