Through powerful first-person accounts, scholarly analyses and historical data, Century of Genocide takes on the task of explaining how and why genocides have been perpetrated throughout the course of the twentieth century. The book assembles a group of international scholars to discuss the causes, results, and ramifications of these genocides: from the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire; to the Jews, Romani, and the mentally and physically handicapped during the Holocaust; and genocides in East Timor, Bangladesh, and Cambodia.

The second edition has been fully updated and features new chapters on the genocide in the former Yugoslavia and the mass killing of the Kurds in Iraq, as well as a chapter on the question of whether or not the situation in Kosovo constituted genocide. It concludes with an essay concerning methods of intervention and prevention of future genocide.

Review:

Focusing on the major atrocities of our time, Century Of Genocide provides accurate and verifiable historical information on how and why particular genocides were committed. Each original essay is accompanied by excerpts from personal accounts of survivors that vividly remind us that the statistics and plain facts represent men, women, and children who were persecuted and killed. Since each contributor addresses the same questions and issues, the essays provide a unified framework for analyzing and comparing the various historical events. An index facilitates research, and bibliographies point to sources where the subject can be pursued in greater depth. The coverage encompasses the genocides in Armenia (1915-1923); Bangladesh (1971); Burundi (1972); Cambodia (1975-1979); East Timor (1975-1979); The Holocaust (1933-1945); Indonesia (1965-1966); Rwanda (1994); South-West Africa (1904); Ukraine (1932-1933), and others. Century Of Genocide represents a wealth of scholarship and research of inestimable value. -- Midwest Book Review
