"Fresh, critical, and original, these essays highlight the destructive dimensions of modern governmentality and gender orders so often overlooked by conventional genocide studies. They crackle with insight."- A. Dirk Moses, European University Institute, Florence, Italy
"A stimulating and sometimes provocative collection which ranges wide across the burgeoning field of genocide research and showcases valuable new contributions to the field."- Martin Shaw, Research Professor, Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals and Sussex University, and Professorial Fellow in International Relations and Human Rights, University of Roehampton, London, UK
"Genocide studies is a fast-moving, interdisciplinary field. Adam Jones’s formidable team of scholars not only provides readers with compelling examples of the insights that are driving the field, but skilfully guides them through the maze of competing interpretations." - Dan Stone, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
"Topics such as the Armenian genocide, mass violence in Sri Lanka and Darfur, and reconciliation in Rwanda are covered in novel ways. The relevance of gender to mass violence is considered in two essays: one theoretical, the other highlighting the neglect of male victims in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Among the topics least familiar to genocide scholars are the usefulness of remote sensing technology in tracking evidence of genocide through environmental changes, the implications of the deliberate destruction of Muslim cultural sites in Bosnia, and the systematic, catastrophic destruction of the Tolowa Indians in California. Altogether a fine publication." - P. G. Conway, emeritus, SUNY College at Oneonta; CHOICE Review (2012).
