The Genocide Convention explores the question of whether the law and genocide law in particular can prevent mass atrocities. The volume explains how genocide came to be accepted as a legal norm and analyzes the intent required for this categorization. The work also discusses individual suits against states for genocide and, finally, explores the utility of genocide as a legal concept.

About the Author:

Professor Quigley is Presidents' Club Professor of Law at the Moritz College of Law, The Ohio State University, USA. He is active in international human rights work and his numerous publications include books and articles on human rights, the UN, war and peace, east European law, African law, and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Professor Quigley served as an expert witness on the law of genocide in the first criminal prosecution charging genocide as defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

Review:

"'This thoroughly researched and eminently readable book is a must for anyone interested in the origin, meaning, or scope of genocide. Professor John Quigley, who served as an expert witness in the first-ever criminal prosecution charging genocide in Cambodia, provides a tour de force study of the Genocide Treaty, its application in various courts, and its deterrent value.' Professor Ved P. Nanda, University of Denver, USA 'With a masterful command of the authorities and the literature, in several languages, John Quigley weaves the complex fabric of the evolving law of genocide. What seemed simple only a decade ago is actually an unfolding story of great complexity, as Professor Quigley demonstrates so effectively.' Professor William A. Schabas, National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland"
