This frank and hopeful meditation on the recurring tragedy of genocide should be read by anybody who cares about its prevention. The author argues that if we are to successfully confront, prevent, or control the most egregious aspects of genocidal violence, we must create containing political institutions and social mechanisms. Focusing on the United States, Hirsch looks hard at complex realities and proposes how to build a politics of prevention.
