9780888996824: Genocide (Groundwork Guides)

Some view the systematic killing, rape, and destruction of homes in Darfur as a grave humanitarian crisis. For others, it’s a clear example of the ultimate crime against humanity genocide. Who is right? What is genocide? Who are the endangered human beings in today’s world? What is the impact on humanity of wiping out entire groups of people? This thoughtful book helps young readers understand these and other difficult questions. Providing an overview of the history of genocide worldwide, the book explores the paradox that while a person who murders another person can be tried and even executed for the crime, a person who murders hundreds or thousands of people usually goes free. Using case studies of acts of genocide throughout history, the book points out the unique character of each while at the same time establishing important links between them. Most importantly, the book answers the question, What can be done to prevent genocide from happening in the future?

From Booklist:

This disturbing history of mass ethnic killings across the world examines the why, when, where, and how genocide takes place--that's a lot for one small book. But in a lucid, informal text, Springer ably documents particular crimes against humanity, including the transatlantic slave trade, the slaughter of America's Native peoples, the Turkish massacre of the Armenians, the Nanking massacre, the Holocaust, and the Khmer Rouge slaughter in Cambodia. She connects those horrific crimes with each other and also with the recent massacres in Rwanda and with what is happening in Darfur, Sudan. Neither sensational nor generic, this sturdy title in the Groundwood Guide series includes meticulously documented notes, a bibliography, detailed time line, and a list of organizations to contact for more information. A fine resource for Holocaust and genocide curriculums, and as a discussion starter on the topic of human rights. Hazel Rochman

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up–These handy volumes address current topics that can be debated in government, history, and science classes. The first chapter frames the question and the remaining ones provide historical background, explanations, and possible solutions (note in Genocide that Wounded Knee took place in 1890, not 1891). The authors express strong viewpoints that are sure to jolt readers into ready agreement or opposition. Springer begins with Today's Genocide and a summary of what is happening in Darfur. Tanaka argues that global warming is affecting people across the globe, with worse yet to come. These concise, straightforward titles are important additions to all collections.–Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
