9780765801517: Pioneers of Genocide Studies

From the early efforts that emerged in the struggle against Nazism, and over the past half century, the field of genocide studies has grown in reach to include five genocide centers across the globe and well over one hundred Holocaust centers. This work enables a new generation of scholars, researchers, and policymakers to assess the major foci of the field, develop ways and means to intervene and prevent future genocides, and review the successes and failures of the past.

The contributors to Pioneers of Genocide Studies approach the questions of greatest relevance in a personal way, crafting a statement that reveals one's individual voice, persuasions, literary style, scholarly perspectives, and relevant details of one's life. The book epitomizes scholarly autobiographical writing at its best. The book also includes the most important works by each author on the issue of genocide.

Among the contributors are experts in the Armenian, Bosnian, and Cambodian genocides, as well as the Holocaust against the Jewish people. The contributors are Rouben Adalian, M. Cherif Bassiouni, Israel W. Charney, Vahakn Dadrian, Helen Fein, Barbara Harff, David Hawk, Herbert Hirsch, Irving Louis Horowitz, Richard Hovannisian, Henry Huttenbach, Leo Kuper, Raphael Lemkin, James E. Mace, Eric Markusen, Robert Melson, R.J. Rummel, Roger W. Smith, Gregory H. Stanton, Ervin Staub, Colin Tatz, Yves Ternan, and the co-editors. The work represents a high watermark in the reflections and self-reflections on the comparative study of genocide.

About the Author:

Samuel Totten, professor emeritus, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, continues to conduct field work in the Nuba Mountains, and is the editor of Transaction’s Genocide Studies series. His latest book is Genocide by Attrition: The Nuba Mountains of Sudan, Second Edition.



Steven Leonard Jacobs is associate professor and Aaron Aronov Chair of Judaic Studies in the department of religious studies at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. His books include Post-Shoah Dialogues: Re-Thinking Our Texts Together, Dismantling the Big Lie: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and The Biblical Masorah and the Temple Scroll: An Orthographical Inquiry.

Review:

“[A collection of] powerful stories related by some of the 25 contributors to Pioneers of Genocide Studies, edited by Samuel Totten and Steven Leonard Jacobs. These autobiographical accounts are extremely interesting, both because they allow insight into why the various scholars entered the field of genocide studies, and because they summarize many of the scholars’ key findings and intellectual preoccupations... [D]efining genocide—and equally, explaining what is not genocide—is very important, both in order to invoke the law of genocide as it now stands and to extend the  umbrella of the law to those who ought to be protected by it, but are not... This inspirational volume will help... continue work in this stressful field.”

—Rhoda E. Howard-Hassmann, Journal of Genocide Research

"Will genocide ever end? No one can be sure, but if hope for a genocide-free world persists, considerable credit belongs to pioneers of genocide studies such as those represented in this informative book. Following in the footsteps of Raphael Lemkin, who coined the term genocide, the leading scholars who speak in these pages show not only how they became committed to genocide prevention but also what steps must be taken if genocide is to afflict humanity no more. Inspiring and instructive, Pioneers of Genocide Studies maps paths and policies that twenty-first century life urgently needs to take."

—John K. Roth, Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College and author, Holocaust Politics

"Sam Totten and Steve Jacobs have collected an astonishing array of scholars to reflect on their work in the area of genocide studies. Individually and collectively, these essays are alternately thoughtful, prophetic, enlightening, and moral. What reader could ask for more? Pioneers of Genocide Studies will help shape the lives and work of future scholars in this important and evolving field."

—Dr. Carol Rittner RSM, Distinguished Professor of Holocaust & Genocide Studies, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
