    1. Jake

      This is primarily a collection of eyewitness accounts compiled by various authors. Not originally what I expected, seeing as how this was recommended to me since I had Samantha Power's "The Problem from Hell." To be fair, I find some disagreement with Mrs. Powers in some areas, but I liked her writing style nonetheless.As for this book, it varies from author to author. The chapters pertaining to the Armenian genocide in 1915 or the Burundi genocide in the 1970's were most informative, since I ha [...]

      If you read one book on genocide, this should be it. It will inform and educate anyone who reads it. The author does an excellent job at detailing the major and minor genocides of the 20th century in a very concise way.

In each case, the author clearly arranges the information about who did the genocide and why, who the victims were, how it was done, and firsthand stories. This is a really important and easy to read book I wish everyone would read it.

Some essays are better written than others. Goes in-depth enough for a class but my own personal research on some of the topics led me even deeper. Then a [...]

      I peruse this text once in awhile but I never feel like I get enough of the background to really explain the root causes and ideologies of the instigators, particularly the chapter on Cambodia.
