Summary and Info
This comprehensive analysis of American policy toward the Armenian Question and the Armenian Genocide focuses on the important role big business played in keeping the United States from more actively opposing the genocide, despite broad public opinion calling for greater action. It surveys the historical evolution of U.S. policy toward the Ottoman Empire since the early nineteenth century and examines the extent to which the missionary community, commercial interests, and international economic and geopolitical competitions shaped U.S. policy during the administrations of McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson.
