Focusing on the major atrocities of our time, Century Of Genocide provides accurate and verifiable historical information on how and why particular genocides were committed. Each original essay is accompanied by excerpts from personal accounts of survivors that vividly remind us that the statistics and plain facts represent men, women, and children who were persecuted and killed. Since each contributor addresses the same questions and issues, the essays provide a unified framework for analyzing and comparing the various historical events. An index facilitates research, and bibliographies point to sources where the subject can be pursued in greater depth. The coverage encompasses the genocides in Armenia (1915-1923); Bangladesh (1971); Burundi (1972); Cambodia (1975-1979); East Timor (1975-1979); The Holocaust (1933-1945); Indonesia (1965-1966); Rwanda (1994); South-West Africa (1904); Ukraine (1932-1933), and others. Century Of Genocide represents a wealth of scholarship and research of inestimable value. -- Midwest Book Review
