More About the Author

I'm Professor of Political Science at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna, BC. From 2005-07, I was postdoctoral fellow in the Genocide Studies Program at Yale University. Among my research interests are comparative genocide studies (I was selected as one of "Fifty Key Thinkers on the Holocaust and Genocide" for the forthcoming book by that title), gender and international politics, and mass media and political transition. My recent books include "The Scourge of Genocide: Essays and Reflections" (Routledge, 2013); "In Iran: Text & Photos" (Lulu Publishing, 2013); "Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction" (Routledge, 2nd edition, 2010); and "Gender Inclusive: Essays on Violence, Men, and Feminist International Relations" (Routledge, 2009). I'm a widely-published Creative Commons photojournalist (see my Global Photo Archive at http://www.flickr.com/adam_jones), and I serve as executive director of Gendercide Watch, a Web-based educational initiative. You can check out my personal website at http://adamjones.freeservers.com.

Format: Paperback
Apart from the rarest exceptions (such as the not-to-be-missed "Female `Circumcision' in Africa: Culture, Controversy, and Change," Edited by Bettina Shell-Duncan and Ylva Hernlund), edited volumes tend to be hit-and-miss affairs. It's hard enough simply to find an appropriate topic, to accumulate contributions that are varied enough to provide interest but not so different that they work at cross-purposes, and to publish the work. Maintaining a razor-like focus as can easily be done with an individually authored book by definition becomes almost impossible with an edited volume.

Editor Adam Jones does just about as good a job with "Gendercide and Genocide" as can reasonably be done. (Full disclosure: I have been personally acquainted with Adam for years and am a strong supporter of his work.) The book manages for the most part to walk the fine line between being too diffuse in focus and suffering from a "me-too" tone. While this is necessarily a somewhat academically oriented book, it still has plenty that will be of interest for any follower of the gender transition movement and/or human rights.

Contributing three of the eleven pieces himself, Jones verges dangerously close to dominating his own edited volume. Yet this decision is justified by Jones' undeniable skill as a researcher, writer, and creative thinker. The founder of award-winning Gendercide Watch ([...]) has never been afraid to challenge received gender wisdom or long-held human rights perspectives, while at the same time never stinting on his footnotes. Jones' book-opening contribution, bearing the same title as the volume, starts us off with a bang.
