Twenty scholars comment on the factors that drive the horrific phenomenon of genocide and the conceptual and theoretical issues surrounding it, with detailed case studies from perspectives including those of Germany, Israel, Italy, Zimbabwe and the United States. They also evaluate attempts to prevent genocide and the implications for human rights policies, with a particular concern to develop new and practical insights.
This volume introduces in a both cogent and upsetting manner a new sociological field, the sociology of genocide. Genocide represents the ultimate and most devastating consequence of social conflict.
