Kenneth J. Campbell, Genocide and the global village , Palgrave (formerly St. Martin’s), August 2001.Campbell explains why the international community fails so miserably to prevent, suppress, and punish contemporary genocide. The book integrates the scattered pieces of this complex problem – political, military, legal, and ethical – into a more complete, clearer picture of the challenge facing the world today. Campbell engages in a complex, multi-level analysis of genocide’s impact upon world order, and the inter-play of politics and morality in the international community’s determination of the appropriate role for military force in halting genocide and securing an emerging global civil society. Contents: Introduction: Return of an “Odious Scourge” * The Grand-Strategic Context * Misunderstanding Genocide * Misusing Force * Misreading the Public * Genocide in Bosnia * Genocide in Rwanda * Genocide in Kosovo * Remedy * Conclusion: Towards a Better Twenty-First Century. Kenneth J. Campbell is Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Delaware. http://www.udel.edu/poscir/kjcamp.htm
John G. Heidenrich, How to prevent genocide : a guide for policymakers, scholars, and the concerned citizen, (Westport, Conn. : Praeger, 2001), 296pp.This book explores various foreign policy options for the prevention of genocide abroad. Research was funded in part by a grant from the United States Institute of Peace. Subtopics in the book include: · International law and international ethics · Humanitarian intervention · Peacekeeping and peace enforcement · Intelligence issues, including early warning measures · The relative effectiveness of diplomacy, economic pressure, and nonviolent resistance · The role of the United Nations, NATO, and other international organizations · The influence of the news media · The role of politics and propaganda · Psychological and sociological factors, including ideology and religion · Cultural and Holocaust-based perspectives on genocide. John G. Heidenrich was for 2 years senior analyst with Open Source Solutions (OSS) Inc., where he is responsible for monitoring and reporting on war crimes and the potential for genocide in countries worldwide. Formerly an analyst with the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), he later joined the Institute for Defense & Disarmament Studies (IDDS), a nonprofit think-tank in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he directed its Project on Genocide Prevention.

Peter Ronayne, Never again? : the United States and the prevention and punishment of genocide since the Holocaust, Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2001, xiii, 223 pp.Peter Ronayne's Never Again? provides the reader with a provocative and comprehensive first look at American foreign policy as it relates to the prevention and punishment of genocide since the Holocaust. The nior faculty member at the Federal Executive Institute, in Charlottesville, Virginia, and is adjunct professor at the University of Virginia.book chronicles how the United States has repeatedly missed opportunities or "ethical leadership moments" to stand up for human rights and save hundreds of thousands of lives when faced with genocide in Cambodia, Bosnia and Rwanda. At the same time, Ronayne explores how the US has taken important action to bring about justice in the aftermath of genocidal crimes, despite its initial reluctance to even ratify the Genocide Convention. From this dual record of striking failures and important accomplishments emerge provocative questions about the United States' leadership on the world stage, global ethics and morality, and America's commitment to genocide prevention and punishment in the 21st century. The final chapter considers the implications of the findings presented here for the future of American foreign policy, the prevention and punishment of genocide, and the evolution of the genocide norm." Despite the startling failures he documents, Ronayne also shows that important progress has been made, however slowly. Chapters: Foreword by Joel H.

Daniel Chirot and Martin E.P. Seligman, editors, Ethnopolitical warfare : causes, consequences, and possible solutions, (Washington, DC : American Psychological Association, 2001), 400 pagesWhy does ethnopolitical conflict sometimes lead to genocide and other times to peace? Ajoint initiative created in 1997 by the two presidents-elect of the American and Canadian Psychological Associations, The Presidential Initiative on Ethnopolitical Warfare (EPW), grew from the concern and realization that destructive international conflict in the post Cold War era had entered a new and chilling phase of expression. An international conference in July 1998 set the foundations for answering the question 'Under what circumstances have ethnic conflicts been resolved, sometimes even after periods of violent bloodshed?' In this volume, political scientists, psychologists, sociologists, and historians examine over a dozen international cases to try to understand what causes a society's ethnic conflicts to escalate or deescalate. This unique book contains cogent critiques of the political and historical antecedents to conflict around the world, combining them with psychological analyses of group identity and intergroup conflict. In examining the escalation of ethnic conflict, the authors highlight the critical role of group identification. How group identification becomes enmeshed with threatened economic resources, violent political subcultures, and media manipulation of collective fear is stressed. The lessons from the histories of specific countries are given cogent review: Why is Tanzania a rare model of ethnic peace in Africa while its neighbor Rwanda houses the worst case of ethnic warfare on the continent? How can South Africa's history provide a positive example of the resolution of ethnopolitical tensions? This book illustrates the promise that an interdisciplinary approach has to offer in preventing further genocide and ethnic warfare in the 21st century.

Bruce D. Jones, Peacemaking in Rwanda : the dynamics of failure, A Project of the International Peace Academy. Boulder, CO : Lynne Rienner Publishers, 200, ix, 209 pp.Bruce Jones investigates why the wide-ranging efforts to forestall genocidal violence in Rwanda in 1994 failed so miserably. Jones traces the individual and collective impact of both official and unofficial mediation efforts, peacekeeping missions, and humanitarian aid. Providing theoretical and empirical evidence, he shows that the failure of the peace process was not the result of lack of effort, or even the weakness of any particular effort. Rather, it was due to a combination of factors: the lack of connections among the various attempts at conflict resolution; the intransigence of the warring parties; the lack of a coherent strategy for managing spoilers in the peace process; and weak international support. Peacemaking in Rwanda generates critical insights into the limits of our contemporary systems for conflict prevention and management, serving as a sobering argument for reform of the international conflict management system. Bruce D. Jones is currently special assistant to the UN's special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, based in Gaza. Previously, he was responsible for strategic coordination and postconflict policy issues at the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Alan J. Kuperman, The limits of humanitarian intervention : genocide in Rwanda, Washington, D.C. : Brookings Institution Press, 2001.Alan J. Kuperman, resident fellow at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, argues against the commonly held view that a small military intervention could have prevented most of the killing in Rwanda. Combining analyses of the genocide's progression and the logistical limitations of humanitarian military intervention, he conclude that even if Western leaders had immediately intervened to halt the genocide in Rwanda, those intervention forces would have arrived too late to save more than a quarter of those killed.
Mahmood Mamdani, When victims become killers : colonialism, nativism, and the genocide in Rwanda (Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, 2001), 380 pp.Columbia University professor of government Mahmood Mamdani examines the long-term historical, geographic, theoretical, and moral centext of the Rwandan genocide of 1994 to explain why so many Rwandans turned upon their neighbors. He finds answers in the nature of political identities generated during colonialism, in the failures of the nationalist revolution to transcend these identities, and in regional demographic and political currents that reach beyond Rwanda to events in neighboring Burundi, Uganda, and Congo. His analysis provides a solid foundation for future studies and notes ways to reform political identity in central Africa and prevent future mass killing. Chapters include Introduction: Thinking about Genocide * Defining the Crisis of Postcolonial Citizenship: Settler and Native as Political Identities * The Origins of Hutu and Tutsi * The Racialization of the Hutu/Tutsi Difference under Colonialism * The ''Social Revolution'' of 1959 * The Second Republic: Redefining Tutsi from Race to Ethnicity * The Politics of Indigeneity in Uganda: Background to the RPF Invasion * The Civil War and the Genocide * Tutsi Power in Rwanda and the Citizenship Crisis in Eastern Congo * Conclusion: Political Reform after Genocide

Yehuda Bauer, Rethinking the Holocaust, Yale University Press, 352 pp. 5 x 8
Yehuda Bauer, one of the worlds premier historians of the Holocaust, here presents an insightful overview and reconsideration of its history and meaning. Drawing on research he and other historians have done in recent years, he offers fresh opinions on such basic issues as how to define and explain the Holocaust; whether it can be compared with other genocides; how Jews reacted to the murder campaign against them; and what the relationship is between the Holocaust and the establishment of Israel. The Holocaust says something terribly important about humanity, says Bauer. He analyzes explanations of the Holocaust by Zygmunt Bauman, Jeffrey Herf, Goetz Aly, Daniel Goldhagen, John Weiss, and Saul Friedländer and then offers his own interpretation of how the Holocaust could occur. Providing fascinating narratives as examples, he deals with reactions of Jewish men and women during the Holocaust and tells of several attempts at rescue operations. He also explores Jewish theology of the Holocaust, arguing that our view of the Holocaust should not be clouded by mysticism: it was an action by humans against other humans and is therefore an explicable event that we can prevent from recurring.
Edwin Black, IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance between Nazi Germany and America's Most Powerful Corporation, (Crown Publishers, February 12, 2001), 519 pp.A book of Holocaust history for the Information Age describing how a US-based international company could be involved in genocide through a German subsidary. Images of past genocides have often been shaped by the means most commonly used to accomplish the destruction. The Armenian gencoide is remembered for telegraph lines and deportation caravans; Rwanda for ID cards, roadblocks and machetes; and Cambodian for the agrarian killing fields where the urban pupulation and others were worked and starved to death. The Holocaust is portrayed as an industrial genocide involving complex train schedules, prussic acid gas chambers and assembly-line oven cremetoria. Edwin Black adds to this image the new element of mass killing through use of data processing and statistics, with IBM's German subsidiary Dehomag (Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Gesellschaft m.b.H.) enabling the Nazi authorities to systematize the persecution of European Jews. The author, who previously wrote the 1999 book The Transfer Agreement : The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine, describes the use of IBM's Hollerith mechanical punch card tabulation machines, an early form of data processing, as a breakthrough technology. One emplyee of Dehomag using these machines to the Nazi Government tablate the population censuses of 1933 and 1939. 'We are very much like physicians,' he told his Nazi audience, 'in that we dissect, cell by cell, the German cultural body... these are not dead little cards; quite to the contrary, they prove later on that they come to life when they are sorted at 25,000 an hour according to certain characteristics.'

Robert Gellately, Backing Hitler : Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, Oxford Univ Press, 359pp.Gellately is the author of The Gestapo and German Society and Professor in Holocaust History at Clark University. Using newspapers and radio broadcasts of the day as evidence, effectively demonstrates how "ordinary Germans" evolved into a powerful base of support for the Nazi regime. Although Hitler and the National Socialists had never garnered an outright majority in elections before 1933, the author convincingly shows that "the great majority of the German people soon became devoted to Hitler and they supported him to the bitter end in 1945." The Nazis achieved this political miracle by "consensus." The Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci argued that political regimes could hardly expect to use unlimited terror against their subjects a technique combining the threat of terror and coercion would be more effective. Using Gramscian theory is hardly new in an analysis of Nazi Germany, but Gellately does make a provocative claim: that the Nazi use of terror against certain categories of "undesirables" (first Communists, Socialists and trade unionists, then Catholic and Protestant opponents, then the mentally and/or physically impaired, then the Jews and Gypsies) was purposively public and that most Germans agreed with such policies. Decrees, legislation, police actions and the concentration camps were not meant to be hidden from the German people, but in fact were extensively publicized. Contents: Introduction 1.

Jan T. Gross, Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, Princeton Univesity Press, 2001, 216 pp.Before the war broke out, 1,600 Jews lived in Jedwabne, and only seven survived, saved by a Polish woman, Wyrzykowska, who lived in the vicinity. On Monday evening, June 23, 1941, Germans entered the town. On July 10, 1941 the Jews of Jedwabne were massacred by their Polish neighbors. Jan Gross pieces together eyewitness accounts and other evidence into an engulfing reconstruction of the horrific July day remembered well by locals but forgotten by history. that Jedwabne's Jews were clubbed, drowned, gutted, and burned not by faceless Nazis, but by people whose features and names they knew well: their former schoolmates and those who sold them food, bought their milk, and chatted with them in the street. His investigation reads like a detective story, and its unfolding yields wider truths about Jewish-Polish relations, the Holocaust, and human responses to occupation and totalitarianism. It is a story of surprises: The newly occupying German army did not compel the massacre, and Jedwabne's Jews and Christians had previously enjoyed cordial relations. After the war, the nearby family who saved Jedwabne's surviving Jews was derided and driven from the area. The single Jew offered mercy by the town declined it. He documents a pattern of Polish wartime and postwar violence toward Jews, not just in Jedwabne but in other cities and towns across Poland. Well researched and documented and includes accounts of Polish villagers in Jedwabne, including massacre participants, and not just the few Jewish survivors. Gross has subtly recast the history of wartime Poland and proposed an original interpretation of the origins of the postwar Communist regime.
