From Library Journal:

Kuper's Genocide ( LJ 5/1/82) and his other writings provide a springboard for this study. He assesses the United Nations record, limited but shimmering with hope; analyzes the failures of punishment designs; and proposes a program of action essentialy within the UN for prevention of the crime. The book is a compelling combination of the philosophical and moralthe right to life, values, ideologies, and self-determinationwith the political and the legal, the stained record of states, the formalistic framework of rules. Kuper's research is broad and deep. He draws extensively on the work of other experts, and recounts individual and mass crimes, organizational activities, and governmental actions. His probe extends beyond genocide to mass murder and nuclear war. While the book is a guide for preventive action, it also is an excellent broad analysis of genocide in the post-war world. Clifton E. Wilson, Political Science Dept., Univ. of Arizona, Tucson
