Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Of very recent coinage, the term 'genocide' describes a very ancient practice. From the beginning of recorded history, men have killed men simply because the victims were somehow 'different.' Our century, of course, has seen genocide perfected: the unimaginably dismal record is too lengthy to be recounted here. There was hope, after World War II, that the United Nations might be able to avert future acts of genocide, but that body's record in Africa, Bangladesh, and elsewhere suggests nothing so much as indifference. Professor Kuper has written what has to be the definitive work on this subject." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
