'A pioneering and important work. A point of first reference for anyone who seeks an understanding of Lemkin's life, ideas and legacy.' - Philippe Sands QC, University College London, UK.
'This is a fine study of a remarkable man, one of the great moral figures of the twentieth century. John Cooper provides a vivid and compelling account of Raphael Lemkin's heroic struggle to get the world to understand and respond to the gravity of genocide, the "crime of crimes".' - Professor Philip Spencer, Kingston University, UK.
'Raphael Lemkin, one of the towering forces of our time, deserves to sit alongside the greatest advocates for humanity. John Cooper's study of the man who ensured the crime of genocide is on the global statute book details what one man can do with insight, conviction and determination. This study is a must-read if you want to know how to be an effective change maker.' - Stephen D Smith, Andrew J and Erna Finci Viterbi Chair, USC Shoah Foundation, USA and UNESCO Chair on Genocide Education
