About This Book

Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is the most wide-ranging textbook on genocide yet published. Designed as a text for undergraduate and graduate students from a range of disciplines, it will also appeal to non-specialists and general readers.

Fully updated to reflect the latest thinking in this rapidly developing field, this unique book:

  • Provides an introduction to genocide as both a historical phenomenon and an analytical-legal concept, including the concept of genocidal intent and the dynamism and contingency of genocidal processes.

  • Discusses the role of state-building, imperialism, war, and social revolution in fueling genocide.

  • Supplies a wide range of full-length case studies of genocides worldwide, each with a supplementary study.

  • Explores perspectives on genocide from the social sciences, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science/international relations, and gender studies.

  • Considers the future of genocide, with attention to historical memory and genocide denial; initiatives for truth, justice, and redress; and strategies of intervention and prevention.

Highlights of the new edition include:

  • New case studies of the Uyghur genocide in the People's Republic of China, the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar, and Muslims in India.

  • The historical and archaeological legacy of genocide.

  • New and vivid testimonies of survivors and witnesses to genocide.

This significantly revised fourth edition will remain an indispensable text for new generations of genocide study and scholarship. An accompanying website ( ) features a selection of supplementary materials, teaching aids, and Internet resources.
