Steven Leonard Jacobs has undertaken the mammoth task of annotating and reproducing Lemkin's original text, a work requiring care, erudition, and extensive knowledge. He is to be commended for his effort and his initiative in rescuing Lemkin's huge work and bringing it, after eight decades of oblivion, finally to fruition. -- Paul R. Bartrop, Florida Gulf Coast University
Scholars and students alike will benefit from Steven Leonard Jacobs' careful scholarly work elucidating obscure references, clarifying incomplete footnotes, and updating bibliographies in Raphael Lemkin's History of Genocide. Jacobs' Lemkin on Genocide will prove to be an indispensable reference for scholars and serious students of genocide. -- Carol Rittner, R.S.M., The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
Steven Jacobs has rendered a valuable service to genocide scholars with the appearance of this book. Jacobs, himself a distinguished genocide scholar, makes accessible Raphael Lemkins' previously unpublished Introduction to the Study of Genocide and three-part History of Genocide. Professor Jacobs' Introduction and notes makes this an indispensable work. If Lemkin is the "Father of Genocide studies," Steven Jacobs is one of his worthy intellectual sons. -- Alan L. Berger, Florida Atlantic University
[In Lemkin on Genocide] we gain a new appreciation for the depth of Lemkin's theoretical understanding and the breadth of his research. In addition, reading Jacob's book provides us a richer sense of how Lemkin fit into the ideological currents of his time. In editing this work, Steve has done a great service to all those interested in genocide. * New Books Network *
