“Turkish Cruelties upon the Armenian Christians: A Reign of Terror”.

Edwin M. Bliss, an Armenophile American who was born in Turkey and had lived there for a considerable number of years, wrote in one of his seminal books that the Greek, the Bulgarians and the Serbians became independent, but that Armenians could not cut the mustard. The major reason for their failure was attributed to one glaring shortcoming: “There was no organization that bound all the Armenians together. They were scattered communities with no bond of union, except their language and their church creed. These communities were ignorant of each other [sic] and jealous of each other’s [sic] prosperity.” Bliss wrote the book in 1896. It was titled “Turkish Cruelties upon the Armenian Christians: A Reign of Terror”.
