Summary "This work examines the provenance of an interview conducted with Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Atatürk by Karl Emil Hildebrand, published in the US in 1926. The interview's significance is twofold. Firstly, Mustafa Kemal's acknowledgment of Turkish culpability in Armenian massacres and secondly his assertion that a last-minute confession by a prominent female conspirator thwarted the 1926 Izmir assassination attempt on his life. Leading Turking scholar, Professor Turkkaya Ataöv, asserts that the interview is an Armenian fabrication made in support of false claims of genocide"--Back cover.
