Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume is a welcome addition to the wealth of scholarship on the topic of genocide, important for the heretofore penury of philosophical attention to this phenomenon ... This volume will be found valuable reading, if troubling and controversial in parts, by any educated adult and would also be useful as a provocative text in university studies of genocide." Wendy C. Hamblet, North Carolina A&T State University

“Where genocide is concerned, philosophy and philosophers need approaches that are more heads-up and hands-on. Fortunately, Genocide's Aftermath provides some significant examples of such philosophical work. The best work in this book favors historical specificity over theoretical abstraction.” Notre Dame
