Herbert Hirsch, Anti-Genocide: Building an American Movement to Prevent Genocide Praeger Publishers. Westport, Conn. 2002. 232 pages

HERBERT HIRSCH is Professor of Political Science at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond. Description ** This book is a frank and hopeful meditation on the recurring tragedy of genocide that should be read by anybody who cares about its prevention. Hirsch argues if we are to successfully confront, prevent, or control the most egregious aspects of genocidal violence, we must create containing political institutions and social mechanisms. But ultimately human nature must change to temper the worst excesses of genocidal violence, given its long and intractable historical presence. Hirsch looks hard at complex realities and proposes how to build a politics of prevention. Focusing on the United States, a political movement must be built that supports the politics of prevention in the international realm. Long-term prevention depends on changing how humans view each other, though. Creating a new ethic of life-enhancing behavior based on the ideology of universal human rights that is passed on from generation to generation via the process of political socialization ultimately is our best hope of preventing future genocides. This book begins with the fact that there is apparently nothing historically unique about human beings killing one another in relatively large numbers. Genocide appears to be a phenomenon that has been a part of human history since we began to record our worst excesses. Certainly it has been in the forefront of human consciousness as the last century came to its bloody conclusion. It is not an intractable problem. A mass movement to prevent genocide can be built, and once created it should pressure the federal government to focus its foreign policy on the prevention of genocide. ** Table of Contents ** -- Preface -- Introduction: Genocide, Politics, and Human Behavior -- Genocide and Political Movements -- Building a Movement to Stop Genocide -- Genocide and Public Opinion: A Comparison of the Policy Making Elite and the General Public -- Putting Pressure on the United States Political Institutions -- Guilty Secrets: Genocide and the Failure of American Foreign Policy During the Clinton and Bush Administrations -- The Failure of Prevention: Bosnia -- A Second Failure of Prevention: The Rwandan Genocide -- Lessons from the Late 20th Century and Early 21st Centuries: Kosovo, Clinton, and Bush -- Genocide and the Politics of Prevention -- A Foreign Policy to Prevent Genocide: The Practicality of Morality -- United States Policy in the New Century -- Reflections on "Ethics," "Morality," and "Responsibility" -- Inculcating an Ethic to Prevent Genocide -- Conclusion: A Politics to Prevent Genocide

Claudia Card, The Atrocity Paradigm: A Theory of Evil, May 2002

What distinguishes evils from ordinary wrongs? Is hatred a necessarily evil? Are some evils unforgivable? Are there evils we should tolerate? What can make evils hard to recognize? Are evils inevitable? How can we best respond to and live with evils? Claudia Card Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, offers a secular theory of evil that responds to these questions and more. Evils, according to her theory, have two fundamental components. One component is reasonably foreseeable intolerable harm -- harm that makes a life indecent and impossible or that makes a death indecent. The other component is culpable wrongdoing. Atrocities, such as genocides, slavery, war rape, torture, and severe child abuse, are Card's paradigms because in them these key elements are writ large. Atrocities deserve more attention than secular philosophers have so far paid them. They are distinguished from ordinary wrongs not by the psychological states of evildoers but by the seriousness of the harm that is done. Evildoers need not be sadistic:they may simply be negligent or unscrupulous in pursuing their goals. Card's theory represents a compromise between classic utilitarian and stoic alternatives (including Kant's theory of radical evil). Utilitarians tend to reduce evils to their harms; Stoics tend to reduce evils to the wickedness of perpetrators: Card accepts neither reduction. She also responds to Nietzsche's challenges about the worth of the concept of evil, and she uses her theory to argue that evils are more important than merely unjust inequalities. She applies the theory in explorations of war rape and violence against intimates. She also takes up what Primo Levi called "the gray zone", where victims become complicit in perpetrating on others evils that threaten to engulf themselves. While most past accounts of evil have focused on perpetrators, Card begins instead from the position of the victims, but then considers more generally how to respond to -- and live with -- evils, as victims, as perpetrators, and as those who have become both.

Samantha Power, A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide New York : Basic Books, 2002, 384 pp.

Samantha Power, whose article "Bystanders to Genocide" in the September 2001 issue of the Atlantic Monthly drew widespread attention will have a book published in February 2002. The executive director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, Power examines how Americans have very rarely marshaled their might to stop genocide and mass terror against Armenians, European Jews, Cambodians, Iraqi Kurds, Bosnians, and Rwandans. Power writes, "Whatever America's commitment to Holocaust remembrance (embodied in the presence of the Holocaust Museum on the Mall in Washington, D.C.), the United States has never intervened to stop genocide. This book is an effort to understand why. While the history of America's response to genocide is not an uplifting one, "A Problem from Hell" tells the stories of countless Americans who took seriously the slogan of "never again" and tried to secure American intervention. Only by understanding the reasons for their small successes and colossal failures can we understand what we as a country, and we as citizens, could have done to stop the most savage crimes of the last century." Drawing upon declassified cables, private papers, exclusive interviews with Washington's top policy-makers, and her own reporting from the modern killing fields in Bosnia in 1993, Power brings a story-teller's gift for gripping narrative together with a reporter's hunger for the inside story. With the authority of one who has witnessed such atrocities herself, Power goes on to set a visionary and yet feasible agenda for how the United States might change course to prevent or halt future genocide. "A Problem from Hell" makes a riveting moral argument for why, as both great power and global citizen, we must renew our vigilance against genocide.

Fishman, John Edwards, William Douglass, Thomas Spira, Robert J. Kaiser, William Safran, John Stone, John Coakley, Donald L. Horowitz, Daniele Conversi, and Brendan O'Leary. London: Routledge, 2002

Nationalism and national identity are too multifaceted and elusive phenomena to be studied from the perspective of a single academic discipline. Ethnonationalism in the Contemporary World is an unprecedented effort to surmount this barrier. Contributors represent a broad array of disciplines: anthropology, comparative politics, geography, history, linguistics, political science, sociology, social psychology, and international relations. The authors are world-renowned authorities both within their respective disciplines and the field of national identity.Their ranks include the current editors-in-chief of five of the six leading journals within that field, as well as the founding editor of the sixth. All contributors have been authoring landmark pieces on national identity for several years, many for decades. With the sole exception of a focal essay by Walker Connor, who coined the term 'ethnonationalism' and to whom the book is dedicated, none of the contributions have previously been published. They address the core issues of identity, including race and identity, race and nation, ethnicity and nation, language and nation, religion and nation, homelands and homeland psychology, dating the creation of nations, the primordial debate, managing ethnic conflict, and the relationship of nationalism to patriotism.

More than fifty years after the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials, nations still struggle with the necessity of holding individuals accountable for human rights violations. This book offers an unprecedented progress report on this crucial enterprise, providing a thoroughly researched and eloquently written survey of the legal and policy framework within which these and other complex issues may be examined. It combines scholarly erudition with a practical sense and thus provides a valuable instrument for the pursuit of international justice. It is indispensable reading for students, practitioners, scholars and others interested in accountability for gross human rights abuses. After examining the scope of international crime, the mechanisms created by states for enforcing laws, and the practical difficulties of applying such laws, the authors conclude their comprehensive study with an important assessment of the future of accountability.

And how do perpetrators and bystanders later come to terms with the choices that they made? These questions have long vexed scholars and laypeople alike, and they have not decreased in urgency as we enter the twenty-first century. In this book, prominent social psychologists use the principles derived from contemporary research in their field to try to she light on the behavior of the perpetrators of genocide. The primary focus of this volume is on the Holocaust, or the Jewish Catastrophe of the 1930s an 1940s, but the conclusions reached have relevance for attempts to understand any episode of mass killing. Among the topics covered (and summarized in the Epilogue) are how crises and difidult life conditions might set the stage for violent intergroup conflict; why some groups are more likely than others to be selected as scapegoats; how certain cultural values and beliefs could facilitate the initiation of genocide; the roles of conformity and obedience to authority in shaping behavior; how engaging in violent behavior makes it easier to for one to aggress again; the evidence for a "genocide prone" personality; and how perpetrators deceive themselves about what they have done. The book does not culminate in a grand theory of intergroup violence; instead, it seels to provide the reader with new ways of making sense of the horrors of genocide. In other words, the goal of all of the contributors is to provide us with at least some of the knowledge that we will need to anticipate and prevent future such tragic episodes.

Margalit Gilad, Germany and Its Gypsies A Post-Auschwitz Ordeal -Univ of Wisconsin Pr;312 pages

"No other study so carefully and comprehensively examines the history of Gypsies in Germany, especially since the end of World War II." —James F. Tent, author of Mission on the Rhine - Historian Gilad Margalit eloquently fills a tragic gap in the historical record with this sweeping examination of the plight of Gypsies in Germany before, during, and since the era of the Third Reich. Germany and Its Gypsies reveals the painful record of the official treatment of the German Gypsies, a people whose future, in the shadow of Auschwitz, remains uncertain. Margalit follows the story from the heightened racism of the nineteenth century to the National Socialist genocidal policies that resulted in the murder of most German Gypsies, from the shifting attitudes in the two Germanys in 1945 through reunification and up to the present day. Drawing upon a rich variety of sources, Margalit considers the pivotal historic events, legal arguments, debates, and changing attitudes toward the status of the German Gypsies and shines a vitally important light upon the issue of ethnic groups and their victimization in society. The result is a powerful and unforgettable testament. Gilad Margalit is lecturer in the Department of General History at the University of Haifa, Israel.
