In recent years, governments of the United Kingdom have refused to accept that the deportations and massacres of Armenians in Turkey in 1915-16 amounted to genocide.

In modern age the security of civilazational-national and state structures, mainly their efficiency and compatibility, is more than ever determined by the quantity and the quality of intellectual resources of those systems, their capabilities on organization and reasonable usage in accordance with their interests. It is also known that besides traditional scientific-educational structures, institutes of academic character and higher education institutions the special research centres are also considered to be important factor of intellectual resources’ organization.

The novel opens with MacDonald celebrating his discovery in his laboratory in Suchumi, Soviet Abkhazia, where he has been studying the underlying reasons for the unusual longevity of the locals.
