Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The first in its class, this dictionary offers a comprehensive overview of the field of genocide studies. In over 600 entries, the dictionary provides information on the definition, theories, history, prevention, intervention, and denial of genocide. Covering everything from the UN's definition of the term to the mechanisms employed when genocide occurs, the book traces the history of genocide and offers detailed information on genocide from around the globe. The events covered range from the Armenian genocide in the early 20th century to the most recent genocides in Rwanda, Srebrenica (Bosnia), and those currently taking place in Darfur. Totten and Bartrop, both university professors and experts on the topic of genocide, have several previous publications to their credit, including Century of Genocide: Critical Essays and Eyewitness Accounts, Teaching About Genocide: Issues, Approaches, and Resources, and The Prevention and Intervention of Genocide: An Annotated Bibliography.
