War Crimes, Genocide, and Justice free pdf

In this sweeping, definitive work, leading human rights scholar David Crowe offers an unflinching account of the long and troubled history of genocide and war crimes. From atrocities in ancient Europe and Asia to more recent horrors in Nazi Germany, Cambodia, and Rwanda, Crowe reveals not only the disturbing consistency they have shown over time, but also the often heroic efforts that nations and individuals have made to break seemingly intractable patterns of violence and retribution. While facing head-on the brutal realities of human history, this book nonetheless finds some cause for hope in the international institutions that have evolved over the last several centuries, and provides critically important insights into the ongoing abuses in Darfur, Guantanamo Bay, Chechnya, and elsewhere.
