Encyclopedia of Genocide

Detailed coverage is provided of many of the known and documented instances of genocide. The best-known instance of all, the Nazi Holocaust, is thoroughly dealt with and set within the context of other genocide such as that of the Armenians in the First World War, the killing in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, the treatment of many indigenous peoples by colonizers in the New World, Australia and elsewhere, and the worst aspects of ‘ethnic cleansing’ in the Former Yugoslavia. Attention is paid to the perpetrators and victims of these genocides, the psychology and ideology underlying genocidal acts, the art, literature and film which have been produced in the course of or as the result of genocide, and the treatment of survivors.
