Pressestimmen

"Based on immense scholarship, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is much more than an indispensable text for students of this seemingly intractable phenomenon. With its global and interdisciplinary perspectives, it consistently advances our understanding of genocidal events on many fronts. Provocative yet balanced, Adam Jones's second edition at once summarizes and defines this burgeoning field." A. Dirk Moses, University of Sydney and the European University Institute, Florence Already the most wide-ranging, accessible and clear-sighted introduction to the subject, the significantly expanded 2nd edition unflinchingly extends the range of its discussion to include contentious issues such as 'cultural' genocide, whether post 9/11 terrorism falls under the rubric, and the wider scope of Ottoman violence against Christian 'minorities' in 1915. Compassionate, searching, up-to-the minute and sometimes even electrifying in its prose this is the book I will be particularly recommending to my university students of genocide. Mark Levene, University of Southampton, UK Reviews for 1st edition: With its interdisciplinary approach and bevy of case studies, 'Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction' will surely become the seminal text for students of genocide. Written in an engaging and conversational style, the book not only explores existing frameworks, but expands the boundaries of genocide studies with attention to issues such as gender and the future of genocide. Perhaps best of all, Jones educates and inspires the reader to become an active and responsible global citizen. Nicholas A. Robins, Duke University, USA This is the best introductory text available to students of genocide studies. Written in clear, elegant prose and supported by a wealth of authoritative sources, GENOCIDE: A COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION is likely to become the gold standard by which all subsequent introductions to this enormously important subject will be measured Kenneth J. Campbell, Professor of Political Science, University of Delaware, USA This wide-ranging inquest into the dynamics of genocidal violence stands as a major contribution to the dismal science of 'massacrology.' More than a collection of case studies, it offers a depth of critical insight and a richness of data seldom matched in comparative studies of genocide. Informed by a formidable erudition, and a deep personal sensitivity to the horrors that he describes, Adam Jones's splendid book is a milestone in the literature on mass crimes and genocide. Rene Lemarchand, Department of Political Science, University of Florida, USA The subtitle says it all: unique in the literature, this book provides a thorough, comprehensive introduction to the subject of genocide. Jones, a Yale political scientist and genocide scholar, delivers a very readable, intellectually stimulating text. The overall perspective is interdisciplinary. Relevant research and insights from psychology, sociology, and anthropology are included; maps and illustrations complement many of the examples and case studies. A Web site http://www.genocidetext.net supplements the book. The historical coverage ranges from discussions of genocide in the Hebrew Bible to contemporary abominations in Sudan's Darfur region. Commendably, there are thoughtful chapters on the significance of gender, memory and denial, and postgenocide tribunals. The book concludes with strategies to anticipate future genocides and intervene when necessary. Readers are encouraged as responsible citizens to consider their reactions to genocide. Summing Up: Essential. All readership levels. P. G. Conway, SUNY College at Oneonta, Choice - Reviews Online

What is with this binding? 7. Mai 2014
Von Caitlyn Hanafin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The book is great but the publisher must have planned to bind the book in the worst way possible to make pages fall out simply by turning them so that used copies are useless and those planning to read it or needing to buy it for class must always purchase brand new books

Helpful overview of the subject 12. Mai 2014
Von Robert Bates - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Proved quite helpful in teaching the Genocide projects in the high school Anthropology class I teach. It broke down well the individual history of each major genocide of the last century, although arguably a bit weak as to the genocidal campaigns against Native Americans, Aborigines, and other indigenous colonized peoples. This book does address well the attempts to define and combat genocide since World War II and leaves us with some ideas, if not complete solutions, on how best to stop this dark side of human history from repeating itself.

This is a necessary volume for anyone interested in the topic of genocide. Jones offers clear and concise information on the major genocides of the past centuries and points to most of the relevant resources needed for further study.
