MEDIA REVIEWS

Prevention of genocide is a most inexact science. It is also a frustrating exercise because the best efforts at early warning are negated frequently due to lack of political will to confront the difficult choices that are always involved in saving innocent lives. Precisely because of those difficulties it is especially important to continue to explore root causes of mass atrocity, as well as how to redress past wrongs before the tensions they create escalate into genocide. It is equally important to study what measures have worked in the past even if the causal link to the prevention of genocide is always hard to prove. In particular, social practices and public policies in the last quarter century that aimed to address legacies of mass atrocities can offer clues towards appropriate remedies for victims and perhaps even a path toward genuine reconciliation [...] This volume is bound to become an indispensable tool in he urgent task to prevent the 'crime of crimes'.' - Juan Mendez, Washington College of Law, USA ''This edited volume [...] provides a series of relatively short, pithy chapters by scholars in political science, history, law, philosophy, anthropology, and theology, and thereby stretches the bounds of scholarship on genocide. The volume as a whole seeks to blur the distinctions between risk and resilience, prevention and coping, and origins and aftermaths, and focuses not only on the destructive vision of genocide, but also on the multiple and often localized forms of resistance and recovery that are typically overlooked. It is this emphasis on resistance and mitigating factors that really breaks new ground.'' - Lucy Hovil, International Refugee Rights Initiative Cathie Carmichael, University of East Anglia, UK Joelle Hecker, Institut d'Etudes Politiques, Paris Chris Jones, University of East Anglia, UK Dean J.
