Professor Fatma Muge Gocek has published a book called Denial of Violence: Ottoman Past, Turkish Present and Collective Violence Against the Armenians 1789-2009 

In her book, Gocek documents the events and factors that make up a complex "collective layer of denial" that keeps Turkey from acknowledging the genocide.  The events include land disputes, failed Ottoman reforms, the humiliating loss in the First Balkan War and a willingness to view Armenians as proxies for enemy Western powers.
