Encyclopedia of genocide and crimes against humanity
In three volumes, some 350 alphabetically arranged signed entries cover the ancient world to the present day and all regions of the world. The editors have taken a broad approach and have included "any event that has been publicly and reasonably debated as falling with the subject matter....": groups that have been the target of genocide, perpetrators, reparation and redress, courts and tribunals, shapers of public opinion (the media), national and international policies, and biographies. Each with a bibliography, the entries range in length from 500 to 5,000 words and concern events, individuals, groups, institutions and laws, theories and philosophy, prevention, prosecution, and cultural representations. Cross references and a thematic outline of contents guide readers, as does the comprehensive index in the third volume, which also contains a glossary, filmography, and devotes about one-third of its pages to relevant primary sources. The writing is serious but accessible to a broad general audience. Editor-in-chief Shelton (George Washington University Law School) and her editorial board have collected and shaped contributions from experts affiliated with universities and institutions in many countries.
