Genocide PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Genocide free pdf "Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction" is the most wide-ranging textbook on genocide yet published. The book is designed as a text for upper-undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a primer for non-specialists and general readers interested in learning about one of humanity's enduring blights. Fully updated to reflect the latest thinking in this rapidly developing field, this new edition provides an introduction to genocide as both a historical phenomenon and an analytical-legal concept, including an extended discussion of the concept of genocidal intent, and the dynamism and contingency of genocidal processes. It discusses the role of state-building, imperialism, war, and social revolution in fueling genocide. It supplies a wide range of full-length case studies of genocides worldwide, each with an accompanying box-text. It explores perspectives on genocide from the social sciences, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science/international relations, and gender studies. It considers 'The Future of Genocide', with attention to historical memory and genocide denial- initiatives for truth, justice, and redress- and strategies of intervention and prevention. Written in clear and lively prose, liberally sprinkled with over 100 illustrations and maps, and including personal testimonies from genocide survivors, "Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction" has established itself as the core textbook of the new generation of genocide scholarship. An accompanying website features a broad selection of supplementary materials, teaching aids, and internet resources.
