This book is the first to offer an overview of the discipline as a whole. In original essays specially commissioned for this book, leading scholars in their fields offer indispensable analyses of complex themes, approaches and explanations, drawn from literatures that, for linguistic and other reasons, are often obscure of inaccessible. Tracing the emergence of genocide studies, analyzing its central concepts, methods and research themes, and providing detailed guides to the rich and varied historiographies of many cases of genocide, this book is an invaluable guide to the literature."@en ;
