Through scholarly analyses and historical data, and eyewitness accounts, the contributors to this volume delineate the antecedents to and the causes and results of genocide in the twentieth century.
In doing so, they provide compelling evidence that rebuts the convoluted and fallacious notions often created by cynics, deniers and “interpreters” who try to shape historical events to fit their own purposes.
The second edition contains new chapters on the genocide in the former Yugoslavia and the mass killing of the Kurds in Iraq, and the intervention and prevention of genocide, as well as updated information on the majority of the genocides.
