"A substantial contribution to Turkish-Ottoman and Armenian studies."--Andrew Mango, London Middle East Institute, University of LondonVom Verlag:
Before World War I, the ancient city of Van in southeastern Anatolia had a population of approximately 100,000 people, while the population of Van Province was about 500,000. Armenians formed a large minority, with Kurdish tribes and Turks in the majority."The Armenian Rebellion at Van "presents a long-overdue examination of Van from the 1870s to 1919. As the authors state, "The Armenian Revolt was an integral part of the great disaster that overcame the people of the Ottoman East. The slaughter of Muslims that accompanied the Armenian revolt in Van Province inexorably led first to Kurdish reprisals on the Armenians, then to a general and mutual massacre of the people of the East."The actions at Van offer a window into the far-reaching events that soon followed in other parts of Anatolia.
