Many of the world's leading authorities from history, sociology, political science and psychology shed new light on the major genocides of the twentieth century in this excellent collection. Irving L. Horowitz and Roger W. Smith provide broad interpretative introductions to the subject. Turkish historian Taner Akcam analyses why Turkey denies the Armenian Genocide to this day, while Vahakn Dadrian examines the lttihad Party's unique role in the conduct of the Armenian Genocide. James Reid analyses Ottoman satanic belief systems as an ideological foundation for the Armenian Genocide, and Helen Fein compares the Armenian, Bosnian and Rwandan genocides. Ben Kiernan examines the lives of two major perpetrators of genocide, Pol Pot and Enver Pasha, and Frank Sysyn examines the lengthy struggle for recognition of the Ukrainian famine as a genocide. The last section features Henry Huttenbach on denial and Ervin Staub on prevention. Thirteen of the fourteen essays are previously unpublished. Levon Chorbajian provides a lengthy, original introduction.
