From author Anar Isgenderli comes another well-documented work about the investigate slaughters of Azerbaijani civilians by Armenian military detachments based on local and foreign records. Made available through Xlibris, REALITIES OF AZERBAIJAN 1917–1920 aims to present one of the great human disasters which has been made little known.
Many historians have written about how the Armenians suffered under Russian campaigns; but very few have mentioned about the Azerbaijani Turkish refugees, and more so, their deaths. “Standard textbooks do not consider the deaths and forced migration of Azerbaijani Turks at all and often avoid mention of even the existence of Azerbaijan,” Justin McCarthy, Distinguished University Scholar, University of Louisville, shares.
REALITIES OF AZERBAIJAN 1917–1920, backed with in-depth Russian, Turkish, and Azerbaijani sources that have been seen in no other studies, is set to complete an uncomplicated task. It presents a summary of piles of records and writings about the slaughter of Turks in Azerbaijan and Armenia. Although not a cheerful reading, this account is what makes accurate history. Readers will be opened to the painful truth that the Azerbaijani Turks have gone through.
The author believes that it should not be possible any longer to write the history of atrocity and inhumanity without including the losses of the Turks of Azerbaijan.
