3637) Free E-Book: Armenians in History and The Armenian Question by Esat Uras


Anatolia is undoubtedly one of the most important regions of the world from the point of view of the role it has played in social and cultural history. From the very earliest times it had been the cradle of civilization, and many states and civilizations under many different names have been established here. The soil of Anatolia, which has produced so many great men and conquerors, has attracted every nation of the world. The Armenians, who form the subject of this book, have laid claim as an indigenous people and on historical, political and cultural grounds, to a large part of Anatolia, and have attempted to prove that the region they call Armenia has belonged to them from ancient times, that on this soil they established independent Armenian kingdoms and that the whole remained under their sway for hundreds of years. This has given rise to a very serious problem in the history of Anatolia.

Before going on to discuss the contents of this book I should like to stress that the region defined as Armenia and which the Armenians constantly claim to be their own, has been the scene of great wars and migrations and lies on the path taken by great conquerors arriving from the south and the east, with a local population which has continually varied its allegiance in accordance with the strength of the invaders. Armenia cannot be regarded as anything more than a simple geographical entity having no definite political frontiers, and it is quite impossible that an organized and continuous Armenian state, recognized by other nations,with definite boundaries and with a specific national outlook, could ever have existed in that part of Anatolia.

This book, entitled Armenians in History and the Armenian Question is divided into five parts. . .
