      Good for what it is - a collection of scholarly essays on various topics around remembrance and denial of the Armenian Genocide. Some were better than others. The last couple are pretty redundant, although I do agree that "The Lewis Affair" is shameful and should be talked about - I just didn't think the three essays really said much different.
