This is literally the ONLY book that I can find the details the total genocide of the Assyrians. The Assyrians were an ancient people that lived in Iraq and iran and were totally whiped out after WWI as the world community looked on. The Armenians lost about half their population due to genocide at the same time. The Kurds, on the other hand, were merely pushed into the mountains of Iraq, Iran adn Turkey where they still exist today.
THis book details the fate of minorities in Muslim sosicieties, showing how the new nationalism of Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran made average Muslims very intolerant of minorities and pitted age old tribal hatreds against one another.
The only flaw thiw book has is it tries to link the three groups as if they have something in common. Yet the Kurds have nothing in common with the Armenians. The Muslim Kurds and Christian Armenians were neighboors in eastern Turkey in 1914. The Kurds had traditionally been rebelious against the Turks but during the war the Turks enlisted them to help keep the christian Armenians in line(due tot he invading christian Russians). During the period 1915-1922 the Armenains were forcefully removed and forced to march to the deserts of Syria where 500,000 to 1.5 million were murdered, raped or kidnapped. The Turks used the Kurds to killm most of these Armenians, promising the kurds booty and young girls as the reward for helpingt he Turkish nationalists get rid of this thron in their side. The Kurds had frequently raided the urban rich armenians prior to the war and were only to happy to now strip the men o f their valuables and rape and marry the 14 and younger girls. So the author seems to have missed the boat in trying to make it seem like these two minority groups had a lot in common. In reality the Kurds were involved in the genocide of the Armenians and in some cases the Assyrians during the chaotic period.
As a book this is an important resource. It just important to realize that these groups although all persecuted were actually involved in persecuting one another.

As an avid history freak with a huge personal collection of history books, I was totally seduced by the subject (and the editorial review) into buying this book. Middle Eastern minorities have always interested me. Boy was this book bad.
... To be honest, I never even got through half of this book.
First of all, the facts on these ethnic groups were so basic that I've actually obtained so much more information for free from websites. Secondly, the style of writing and presentation is too amateurish as if a poor undergraduate history student submitted this as his paper/thesis on his way to getting a "D" grade. In addition, there were many spelling and grammatical errors in the book which one could not overlook. Since the author, Prof. Dr. Burchard Brentjes is German, I would not be surprised that this is due to the shortcomings of his translator.
The only interesting thing about this book is the title.
