4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Seth J. Frantzman HALL OF FAME on December 16, 2007
This books central thesis is that genocide is a product of the West. On the surface this looks clear. The west invented the word genocide to define what it had done to people like the Jews. But since then it has been clear that the first genocide of the twentieth century was actually in the Ottoman empire, against the Armenians. Subsequent genocides have taken place in Cambodia and Rwanda and in Sudan. The author points to the eradication of native people and colonialism as part and parcel to the idea of genocide. But genocide existed long before in many settings. Many people's have been compeltely destroyed and massacred in history. The way in which Rome subdued Carthage is a typical example. The Carthaginians were all sold into slavery and the women raped. A similar process took place in Arabia with the birth of Islam. Genocide is as old as humanity itself. The argument that modern technology makes genocide easier does not hold much water. The Rwandan genocide was carried out with machetes. The only thing the Nazis perfected was an efficient and 'clean' genocide. But in human history many small groups have been destroyed by neighboring ones. THe Bible is replete with such stories.

The evidence is simply sadly lacking for this books claims.
