Scott Taylor’s new book
Unreconciled Differences – Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan

During the Past century, there have been two major clashes in the Anatolia-Caucasus region, both resulting in the widespread slaughter and forced expulsion of innocent civilians from all sides. The first ocurred when the strain of the Great War caused the collapse of both the Ottoman Empire and Czarist Russia.

The second conflict erupted between 1988 – 1994, when the disintegration of the Soviet Union left a temporary power vacuum in the Caucasus, and the new republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia battled over the sovereignty of Nagorno-Karabakh.

What these two confilcts also share is that few in the West have observed, chronicled, or been able to fully understand the complexity of the situation. Those existing accounts are rife with partisan propaganda and widely divergent assessments.

Unfortunately, the unreconciled differences of their shared history continue to negatively impact the lives of the Turks, Armenians and Azeris in the present. If left unresolved, this will prevent their progress towards a peaceful and mutually beneficial coexistence in the future.

Written by former Canadian Soldier turned war correspondent Scott Taylor, this book is based both on in depth historical research and on Taylor’s personal findings on reporting trips to the area speaking with followers leaders and everything in between on both sides of the conflict.
