A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide (P.S.) by Samantha Power
A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide (P.S.)

Michael Ackerman, January 1, 2010

I've been reading/studying about the uses of Genocide for many years with an emphasis on The Holocaust-but,since then, whether it was in Eastern Europe in the 90's or in Africa since then,I've NEVER read anything about the origins of the term or the concept it embodies-Power,a respected authority and academic(and now an Asst. Sec. of State in the Obama administration), won the Pulitzer Prize for her efforts-this is a REAL contribution to society in understanding how nations can use Genocide to destroy their own people-

While many books I read this past decade merit consideration, this really stands out in my mind
