The Historiography of Genocide

Genocide Studies is one of the fastest-growing fields in the social sciences, attracting students from a wide range of disciplines (including history, sociology, political science, philosophy, law, anthropology, and cultural studies). The Historiography of Genocide is the first book to offer an overview of the discipline as a whole, in original essays specially commissioned for this book, leading scholars in their fields offer indispensable analyses of complex themes, approaches and explanation, drawn from literatures that, for linguistic and other reasons, are often obscure or inaccessible. Tracing the emergence of genocide studies, analyzing its central concepts, methods and research themes, and providing detailed guides to the rich and varied historiographies of many cases of genocide, this book is an invaluable guide to the literature.
