Genocide is the intentional destruction of a national, racial, religious, or ethnic group, whether in wartime or peace. In 1948, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, and yet this crime is still prolifically conducted by various regimes. Articles and essays included in this must-have volume explore issues related to recognizing, analyzing, and defining global genocide. Topics covered include differing international views of what constitutes genocide. Readers will learn about contemporary examples of genocide from countries such as the Congo, Sri Lanka, North Korea, and the Sudan. Expert sources help readers to understand the means of preventing and prosecuting genocide. Readers will also analyze the legacy of genocide.
