Overview

Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is the most wide-ranging textbook on genocide yet published. The book is designed as a text for upper-undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a primer for non-specialists and general readers interested in learning about one of humanity's enduring blights.

The third edition will follow relatively closely the template established by the successful first two editions. Instructors who use the volume from year to year will not be required to adjust to extensive structural transformations. This new edition aims to bring the analysis and sourcing up to date; to freshen and renew subsidiary components of the book like images, box texts, secondary cases in the case-study chapters. A wide range of such alterations have been made, but the core chapter structure remains identical with the first two.

Written in clear and lively prose, liberally sprinkled with over 100 illustrations and maps, and including personal testimonies from genocide survivors, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction has established itself as the core textbook of the new generation of genocide scholarship. An accompanying website (www.genocidetext.net) features a broad selection of supplementary materials, teaching aids, and Internet resources.
