Crimes against humanity are amongst the most shocking violations imaginable. Savelsberg′s text provides a much-needed criminological insight to the subject, exploring explanations of and responses to human rights abuses. Linking human rights scholarship with criminological theory, the book is divided into three parts:

Part 1: Examines the legal and historical approach to the topic within a criminological framework

Part 2: Unpicks the aetiology of human rights offending, using detailed case studies such as the Holocaust and the Darfur genocide

Part 3: Explores institutional responses to crimes and uses criminological theory to offer solutions

Review:

In this concise book... Joachim J. Savelsberg provides further illumination on a topic affecting the wellbeing and future of humanity, specifically through the lenses of criminology...Savelsberg’s book effectively achieves a number of objectives. Firstly, and perhaps importantly, this concise reading provides a meaningful contribution to the growing branches of critical and contemporary criminology, while providing original ideas to further enrich literature on genocide and atrocities. In writing on these crimes, Savelsberg adopts an international approach with the inclusion of case studies, research findings, laws and legal institutions from around the globe. Many opportunities for both theoretical and empirical research are also exposed, thus helping to encourage further research in this area and to facilitate multidisciplinary scholarly collaboration. Titles for each thematic section, chapter, and subsection headers are all posed as questions as a creative way to engage the reader in a conversation with Savelsberg. This makes the book all the more clear and lively, similar to attending a lecture

Michael J. Puniskis
Crime, Law and Social Change

Joachim Savelsberg brings a unique perspective and research background to the topic of crime and human rights. The book provides a succinct and penetrating analysis that persuasively explains why contemporary criminology must widen its boundaries to make human rights crimes a priority for our field. This book is essential reading for scholars and students
John Hagan
MacArthur Professor, Northwestern University



"Joachim Savelsberg is one of the world′s finest sociologists of crime and the institutions through which it is constituted and controlled. In this brief but path-breaking study he shows how the tools of criminological analysis can deepen our understanding of the processes that produce genocide and crimes against humanity - and why an engagement with human rights is essential for a 21st century criminology that aspires to depth and relevance." (David Garland 2010-04-26)
