Genocide Reviews

An excellent contribution to the field of genocide studies: lucid, wide--ranging, and accessible; should be a core text in any course on genocide. Roger W. Smith, The College of William and Mary This volume, edited and ably introduced by an important scholar of genocide, is an especially timely and important contribution to a growing field. Essential international documents coupled with an excellent collection of previously published articles attempt to explain genocide and related state violence as the first step towards prevention. This fine book is especially suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses. Carole Nagengast, University of New Mexico This Reader will be useful for college teachers and novice administrators. Each contribution examines dramatic and controversial issues of immediate concern. While the collection addresses genocidal disasters, its emphasis is on the differences among them, and the varied interpretations that have been made of their causes and their consequences. Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
