The first English-language biography of the de facto ruler of the late Ottoman Empire and architect of the Armenian Genocide
Talaat Pasha (1874-1921) led the Young Turks' single-party regime in the Ottoman Empire during World War I and is arguably a founding father of modern Turkey. He was also the architect of the Armenian Genocide, which set the stage for a century that would witness political terror and ethnic cleansing on a scale never imagined. Here is the first biography in English of the revolutionary figure who not only prepared the way for Ataturk and the founding of the republic in 1923, but who shaped the modern world as well. In this explosive book, Hans-Lukas Kieser provides a mesmerising portrait of the shrewd and merciless politician who maintained power through a potent blend of Islamic-Turkish nationalism and a readiness to employ violent 'solutions.'
'This brilliant portrait of Talaat Pasha is in a league of its own.' - Lisa Kaaki, Arab News
'Gripping.' - John Waterbury, Foreign Affairs
