Genocide: Standby or Intervene?

Overview

Genocide is the deliberate destruction of a racial, tribal, ethnic, national, or religious group, either within a particular nation or, sometimes, throughout a much larger population. While the most "famous" genocide of the twentieth century was the Holocaust, reports of cultural mass murders were written about in the Old Testament.

Overview

Genocide is the deliberate destruction of a racial, tribal, ethnic, national, or religious group, either within a particular nation or, sometimes, throughout a much larger population. While the most "famous" genocide of the twentieth century was the Holocaust, reports of cultural mass murders were written about in the Old Testament. In the twenty-first century, genocide is still taking place in Darfur. It may be impossible to stop genocidal urges, but many argue it is morally indefensible pot to step in and try to stop those ongoing mass murders. In Genocide: Stand By or Intervene? award-winning author Lila Perl examines the history of genocide, details several specific genocidal attacks in our recent history, and probes the beliefs behind this critical question.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Over the past century horrific events have occurred based upon the concept that one group of people has the right to destroy a separate class of human beings. During World War II, the Nazi racial doctrines were used as a rationale for the killing of six million Jews and nearly the same number of other "undesirable" human beings. However, as Lila Perl details in this compelling study of genocidal practices, the Germans were neither the first nor the last people to engage in such catastrophic practices. In Genocide readers are provided background information on genocidal actions that have occurred in Turkey, The Sudan, the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Nazi Germany, and Cambodia. In each instance the author tracks the history that led to the terrible results as well as the international response to those events. Sadly, as Perl indicates in this chilling but important book, the response of other nations to the perpetration of genocide is all too often deficient. Time and again, the international community is either too slow to react or unwilling to confront the minions of genocidal leaders. The end result of such inaction has been the killing of literally millions of people by regimes controlled by merciless leaders. As Lila Perl reveals in this thought provoking work, genocide is a concept abhorrent to most human thought but also one that continues to occur even at the present moment. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
