Textbook Coverage of the Destruction of the Armenians
Lindquist, David H.
Journal of International Social Studies, v2 n1 p26-37 Spr-Sum 2012
Despite its importance as the event establishing that the 20th century would be known as "the age of genocide," the destruction of the Armenians that occurred between the mid-1890s and 1923 is given marginal coverage in contemporary U. S. high school history textbooks. This article critiques that coverage and identifies the overall flow of the information that is presented while noting several instances in which information is presented in an underdeveloped, confusing, or contradictory manner. It then makes several suggestions about topics that should be included in an expanded coverage of the Armenian situation, thus ensuring that students develop accurate perspectives about this critical event.
