About the Author:

JOHN COOPER studied History at Balliol College, Oxford, UK, and was in private legal practice until his retirement. His publications include Eat and be Satisfied: a Social History of Jewish Food and Pride Versus Prejudice: Jewish Doctors and Lawyers in England, 1890-1990.

Review:

“The strength of Cooper’s book is its detail on Lemkin’s role in fostering an international treaty on genocide. Cooper makes good use of British Foreign Office material and of Lemkin’s autobiographical writings. He juxtaposes material from official proceedings and Lemkin’s own to illustrate the backstory, giving us a vivid picture of the scope and importance of Lemkin’s contributions. ... Cooper’s book gives a reader insight into the intellectual and political work that brought these mechanisms into being.” (John B. Quigley, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Vol. 31 (5), 2017)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Condition: New. 334 pages. Now published for the first time in paperback, this is the first comprehensive biography of Raphael Lemkin (1900-59), the man who invented the word genocide and campaigned relentlessly for the United Nations Genocide Convention. Utilising Lemkins own papers as well as other sources, it contextualises his career, showing how his ideas were formed in the midst of ethnic strife in Eastern Europe and as a member of the international law circuit. The book focuses on the campaign for a convention orchestrated by Lemkin, dealing both with its supporters and enemies, particularly the British government. While Lemkin drew attention to the need to preserve diverse cultures, both in his campaigning and his historical writing, the Western powers amended the convention, so that it became an instrument solely for preventing physical genocide. The book also covers Lemkins historical research on genocide, presenting a number of studies, particularly of colonial genocide. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781137427373
