Abstract:

"In this new book, best-selling author Barbara Coloroso, whose work on bullying has brought her international recognition, turns her attention to genocide: what it means, where it begins, where it must end." "Through an examination of three clearly defined genocides - of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire; the Jews, Romany, and Sinti in Europe; and the Tutsi in Rwanda - Coloroso deconstructs the causes of genocide and its consequences, both to the immediate victims, and to the fabric of the world at large, and proposes the conditions that must exist in order to eradicate this evil from the world."--Jacket.
