内容説明

Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is the most wide-ranging textbook on genocide yet published. The book is designed as a text for upper-undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a primer for non-specialists and general readers interested in learning about one of humanity’s enduring blights.

Fully updated to reflect the latest thinking in this rapidly developing field, this new edition:

  • provides an introduction to genocide as both a historical phenomenon and an analytical-legal concept, including an extended discussion of the concept of genocidal intent, and the dynamism and contingency of genocidal processes
  • discusses the role of state-building, imperialism, war, and social revolution in fueling genocide
  • supplies a wide range of full-length case studies of genocides worldwide, each with an accompanying box-text
  • explores perspectives on genocide from the social sciences, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science/international relations, and gender studies
  • considers "The Future of Genocide," with attention to historical memory and genocide denial; initiatives for truth, justice, and redress; and strategies of intervention and prevention.

Written in clear and lively prose, liberally sprinkled with over 100 illustrations and maps, and including personal testimonies from genocide survivors, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction has established itself as the core textbook of the new generation of genocide scholarship. An accompanying website (www.genocidetext.net) features a broad selection of supplementary materials, teaching aids, and Internet resources.

レビュー

"Based on immense scholarship, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction is much more than an indispensable text for students of this seemingly intractable phenomenon. With its global and interdisciplinary perspectives, it consistently advances our understanding of genocidal events on many fronts. Provocative yet balanced, Adam Jones’s second edition at once summarizes and defines this burgeoning field."

A. Dirk Moses, University of Sydney and the European University Institute, Florence

Already the most wide-ranging, accessible and clear-sighted introduction to the subject, the significantly expanded 2nd edition unflinchingly extends the range of its discussion to include contentious issues such as 'cultural' genocide, whether post 9/11 terrorism falls under the rubric, and the wider scope of Ottoman violence against Christian 'minorities' in 1915. Compassionate, searching, up-to-the minute and sometimes even electrifying in its prose this is the book I will be particularly recommending to my university students of genocide.

Mark Levene, University of Southampton, UK

Reviews for 1st edition:

With its interdisciplinary approach and bevy of case studies, 'Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction' will surely become the seminal text for students of genocide. Written in an engaging and conversational style, the book not only explores existing frameworks, but expands the boundaries of genocide studies with attention to issues such as gender and the future of genocide. Perhaps best of all, Jones educates and inspires the reader to become an active and responsible global citizen.

Nicholas A. Robins, Duke University, USA

This is the best introductory text available to students of genocide studies. Written in clear, elegant prose and supported by a wealth of authoritative sources, GENOCIDE: A COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION is likely to become the gold standard by which all subsequent introductions to this enormously important subject will be measured

Kenneth J. Campbell, Professor of Political Science, University of Delaware, USA

This wide-ranging inquest into the dynamics of genocidal violence stands as a major contribution to the dismal science of 'massacrology.' More than a collection of case studies, it offers a depth of critical insight and a richness of data seldom matched in comparative studies of genocide. Informed by a formidable erudition, and a deep personal sensitivity to the horrors that he describes, Adam Jones's splendid book is a milestone in the literature on mass crimes and genocide.

Rene Lemarchand, Department of Political Science, University of Florida, USA

The subtitle says it all: unique in the literature, this book provides a thorough, comprehensive introduction to the subject of genocide. Jones, a Yale political scientist and genocide scholar, delivers a very readable, intellectually stimulating text. The overall perspective is interdisciplinary.  Relevant research and insights from psychology, sociology, and anthropology are included; maps and illustrations complement many of the examples and case studies. A Web site http://www.genocidetext.net supplements the book.  The historical coverage ranges from discussions of genocide in the Hebrew Bible to contemporary abominations in Sudan's Darfur region. Commendably, there are thoughtful chapters on the significance of gender, memory and denial, and postgenocide tribunals. The book concludes with strategies to anticipate future genocides and intervene when necessary. Readers are encouraged as responsible citizens to consider their reactions to genocide. Summing Up: Essential. All readership levels.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x88e84bd4) What is with this binding? 2014/5/7
投稿者 Caitlyn Hanafin - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
The book is great but the publisher must have planned to bind the book in the worst way possible to make pages fall out simply by turning them so that used copies are useless and those planning to read it or needing to buy it for class must always purchase brand new books

5つ星のうち HASH(0x9b56c5ac) Excellent introduction to genocide 2015/7/5
投稿者 E. N. Anderson - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This is a good, solid, thorough introduction to a subject that is far too neglected (presumably because people can't bear to read about it). I hope this book will make genocide more widely known and understood, and will get people to do something about it; there is a good chapter here on prevention and warning signs. I do, however, have to agree with the reviewer who complains about the binding. I hope for a third edition and I hope Routledge invests more in making it more usable.
5つ星のうち HASH(0x882cfa80) Great Overview of a Dark Subject 2015/6/26
投稿者 Kevin Pallister - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
This book is a major achievement. It provides a thorough introduction to the subject of genocide, and the author displays an impressively broad familiarity with the literatures on specific cases of genocide. The case study chapters provide appropriate depth while remaining concise, and the thematic chapters provide interesting analysis of genocide from different perspectives.

One crucial issue that any book on genocide must grapple with is how to define genocide, and Jones discusses various definitions at some length. Readers may dispute Jones’ preferred definition of genocide, and even more so his inclusion of certain cases as episodes of genocide (he even considers the 9/11 attacks as potentially genocidal). But while the inclusion of some historical episodes under the framework of genocide is debatable, Jones’ discussion of those cases no doubt provides good fodder for discussion in classes that assign this text.

I did have one stylistic quibble with the book: the author’s excessive direct quoting of sources. This is something I teach my own writing students to avoid, and the book would benefit from cutting back on direct quotes. Otherwise the book is well written, and even enjoyable to read despite the grim subject matter. The suggested further readings at the end of each chapter are also especially helpful.

[This review is for the book's 2006 edition, but I thought it would be more useful here under the more recent edition.]

5つ星のうち HASH(0x882cf774) Helpful overview of the subject 2014/5/13
投稿者 Robert Bates - (Amazon.com)

Proved quite helpful in teaching the Genocide projects in the high school Anthropology class I teach. It broke down well the individual history of each major genocide of the last century, although arguably a bit weak as to the genocidal campaigns against Native Americans, Aborigines, and other indigenous colonized peoples. This book does address well the attempts to define and combat genocide since World War II and leaves us with some ideas, if not complete solutions, on how best to stop this dark side of human history from repeating itself.

A thorough and comprehensive examination of this phenomenon which continues to plague the human race. Very well written and can be appreciated by the average reader and the academic alike. I recommend this book to all who are interested in history.
