Overview

"ethnic cleansing" has become one of the key terms of the fin-de-siecle. In the former territory of Yugoslavia, along the fringes of the old Soviet Empire, and in Africa whole populations are being murdered or forced from lands they have lived on for centuries. Andrew Bell-Fialkoff explains the history of this obscene practice, tracing it from antiquity to the present and showing how, in different times and places, the most varied criteria have been used to isolate and destroy previously accepted or even completely unnoticed groups. "Cleansing" has been based on race, gender, class, sexual preference, and religion and has been a constant evil in world history. The need to understand its emergence in the wake of communism's collapse is at the center of this important book.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An analysis of "ethnic cleansing" explaining the history of the practice from its beginnings in antiquity to the present. "Cleansing" is defined as part of a continuum with forced emigration on one end and genocide on the other. Victimization can be based on race, gender, class, sexual preference, and religion, though the central thesis of the volume centers on the most recent ethnic cleansing occurring in the wake of communism's collapse in Yugoslavia, the former Soviet Union, and in Africa. Includes maps, tables, and figures. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
