It examines the root causes of genocide, using illustrative case histories from the nineteenth century to the present to identify recurrent patterns. A basic theme is that clear warnings always appear long before a genocide erupts and that there are practical ways to prevent its outbreak. It describes pillars of prevention: how human societies can develop strong, long-term potential for preventing mass violence of all kinds. It considers what various organizations and institutions can do to build and maintain the pillars of prevention. It concludes that focal points of knowledge and skill in prevention are essential to identify warning signals and to prepare and propose appropriate responses before a genocide begins.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
