Peter Balakian, The Burning Tigris: The Armenian Genocide and America’s Response (Harper Collins Press, 2003).

This immensely readable monograph chronicles not only the Armenian Genocide and the humanitarian crises that took place at the turn of last century and well into the 1930s, but also the coordinated international humanitarian movement for Armenia. In the study of America’s rise into global politics, reveals to the Christian and Evangelical underpinnings of much of this activity.
