Genocide: The Basics is an engaging introduction to the study of a controversial and widely debated topic. This concise and comprehensive book explores key questions such as; how successful have efforts been in the prevention of genocide? How prevalent has genocide been throughout history? and how has the concept been defined? Real world case studies address significant issues including:

  • The killing of indigenous peoples by colonial powers
  • The Holocaust and the question of "uniqueness"
  • Peacekeeping efforts in the 1990s
  • Legal attempts to create a genocide-free world

With suggestions for further reading, discussion questions at the end of each chapter and a glossary of key terms, Genocide: The Basics is the ideal starting point for students approaching the topic for the first time.
