Genocide : A Reader, Hardback Book


Genocide is a phenomenon that continues to confound scholars, practitioners, and general readers.

Notwithstanding the carnage of the twentieth century, our understanding of genocide remains partial. Disciplinary boundaries have inhibited integrative studies and popular, moralizing accounts have hindered comprehension by advancing simple truths in an area where none are to be had.

Genocide: A Reader lays the foundations for an improved understanding ofgenocide.

With the help of 150 essential contributions, Jens Meierhenrich provides a unique introduction to the myriad dimensions of genocide and to the breadth and range of critical thinking that exists concerning it.

This innovative anthology offers genre-defining as well as genre-bending selections from diversedisciplines in law, the social sciences, and the humanities as well as from other fields.

A wide-ranging introductory chapter on the study and history of genocide accompanies the carefully curated and annotated collection.

By revisiting the past of genocide studies and imagining its future, Genocide: A Reader is an indispensable resource for novices and specialists alike.
