   schema:description ""In this highly controversial and original work, Damien Short systematically rethinks how genocide is and should be defined. Rather than focusing solely on a narrow conception of genocide as direct mass-killing, through close empirical analysis of a number of under-discussed case studies {u2013} including Palestine, Sri Lanka, Australia and Alberta, Canada {u2013} the book reveals the key role played by settler colonialism, capitalism, finite resources and the ecological crisis in driving genocidal social death on a global scale."--Publisher's website."@en ;
