About the Author:

JOHN COOPER studied History at Balliol College, Oxford, UK, and was in private legal practice until his retirement. His publications include Eat and be Satisfied: a Social History of Jewish Food and Pride Versus Prejudice: Jewish Doctors and Lawyers in England, 1890-1990.

Review:

“The strength of Cooper’s book is its detail on Lemkin’s role in fostering an international treaty on genocide. Cooper makes good use of British Foreign Office material and of Lemkin’s autobiographical writings. He juxtaposes material from official proceedings and Lemkin’s own to illustrate the backstory, giving us a vivid picture of the scope and importance of Lemkin’s contributions. ... Cooper’s book gives a reader insight into the intellectual and political work that brought these mechanisms into being.” (John B. Quigley, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Vol. 31 (5), 2017)
