(p.260) 12 The First World War and the Development of the Armenian Genocide
A Question of Genocide

Donald Bloxham

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the proximate causes of the Armenian genocide. It argues that there was no a priori blueprint for genocide, but rather that it emerged from a series of more limited regional measures in a process of cumulative policy radicalization. The chapter is also a plea for the normalization of the study of state-sponsored mass murder, for a recognition that it emerges, like many other governmental policies across a spectrum of regimes, often piecemeal, informed by ideology but according to shifts of circumstance.

Keywords:   Armenian genocide, Ottomans, state-sponsored mass murder, regional measures
