>>> Download Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction, 2nd Edition eBook <<<Review "Based on immense scholarship, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is muchmore than an indispensable text for students of this seemingly intractable phenomenon. With itsglobal and interdisciplinary perspectives, it consistently advances our understanding of genocidal events on many fronts. Provocative yet balanced, Adam Jones??™s second edition atonce summarizes and defines this burgeoning field."A. Dirk Moses, University of Sydney andthe European University Institute, Florence Already the most wide-ranging, accessible andclear-sighted introduction to the subject, the significantly expanded 2nd edition unflinchinglyextends 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 violenceagainst Christian 'minorities' in 1915. Compassionate, searching, up-to-the minute andsometimes even electrifying in its prose this is the book I will be particularly recommending tomy university students of genocide. Mark Levene, University of Southampton, UK Reviews for1st edition: With its interdisciplinary approach and bevy of case studies, 'Genocide: AComprehensive Introduction' will surely become the seminal text for students of genocide.Written in an engaging and conversational style, the book not only explores existingframeworks, but expands the boundaries of genocide studies with attention to issues such asgender and the future of genocide. Perhaps best of all, Jones educates and inspires the reader tobecome an active and responsible global citizen. Nicholas A. Robins, Duke University, USAThis 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: ACOMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION is likely to become the gold standard by which allsubsequent introductions to this enormously important subject will be measured Kenneth J.Campbell, Professor of Political Science, University of Delaware, USA This wide-ranginginquest into the dynamics of genocidal violence stands as a major contribution to the dismalscience of 'massacrology.' More than a collection of case studies, it offers a depth of criticalinsight and a richness of data seldom matched in comparative studies of genocide. Informed bya formidable erudition, and a deep personal sensitivity to the horrors that he describes, AdamJones's splendid book is a milestone in the literature on mass crimes and genocide. ReneLemarchand, Department of Political Science, University of Florida, USA The subtitle says itall: unique in the literature, this book provides a thorough, comprehensive introduction to thesubject of genocide. Jones, a Yale political scientist and genocide scholar, delivers a veryreadable, intellectually stimulating text. The overall perspective is interdisciplinary.? Relevantresearch and insights from psychology, sociology, and anthropology are included; maps andillustrations complement many of the examples and case studies. A Web sitehttp://www.genocidetext.net supplements the book.? The historical coverage ranges fromdiscussions of genocide in the Hebrew Bible to contemporary abominations in Sudan's Darfurregion. Commendably, there are thoughtful chapters on the significance of gender, memory anddenial, and postgenocide tribunals. The book concludes with strategies to anticipate futuregenocides and intervene when necessary. Readers are encouraged as responsible citizens toconsider their reactions to genocide. Summing Up: Essential. All readership levels. P. G.Conway, SUNY College at Oneonta, Choice - Reviews Online About the Author Adam Jones,
