This study of the phenomenon of cultural and racial extermination examines the Nazi Holocaust and incidences of genocide in Cambodia, Rwanda and Bosnia. It asks such questions as: what conditions prompt and permit acts of genocide?; who should be held personally responsible?; and what can be done to prevent genocide? Issues explored include international intervention, the bringing of perpetrators to trial, the possibility of avoiding future genocides, and how genocide reflects the world in which we live. Amnesty International acted as consultants on this title. The book is part of a series which examines some of the most important and controversial issues facing the world today. The causes and effects of these subjects are investigated within a global context, while quotations from experts, public figures and people with personal experience of the subjects are featured throughout. In each title, facts, statistics and case studies are used to explore the topic.
