Genocide: Conceptual and Historical Dimensions

Synopsis

The term genocide has been used to describe a wide range of events and polities, from the "final solution of the Jewish question" in Nazi Germany to Western efforts to establish birth control and abortion programs in Third World nations. It is these dimensions of genocide that the authors to this volume explore, in the context both of their historical roots and of the implications for current and future international action. "Thoughtful and well-researched."--
