Summary

This volume is comprised of over 2,300 annotations on a wide array of issues and topics germane to the subject of preventing the atrocities of genocide and managing these conflicts when they do arise.

Samuel Totten brings together in one comprehensive collection the research and findings in various fields, such as political science, sociology, history, and psychology, to enable specialists in genocide studies, peace studies, and conflict resolution to benefit from the insights of a diverse range of scholars and foster an understanding of how the various components of genocide studies connect. Among the topics included are:

  • key conventions, international treaties, and covenants
  • genocide early warning signals and forecasting
  • risk data bases
  • sanctions
  • peacekeeping missions
  • conflict resolution
  • the International Criminal Court
  • realpolitik vis-à-vis the issue of genocide prevention and intervention
  • key non-governmental agencies
  • key governmental and UN bodies working on these important issues.  

In addition to the annotations, Totten frames the bibliography with a major essay that introduces the reader to the subject of prevention and intervention of genocide, raising a host of critical issues regarding the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of various approaches germane to issues of managing these conflicts.
