Specter of Genocide by Robert Gellately

Book Description

Genocide, mass murder and human rights abuses are arguably the most perplexing and deeply troubling aspects of recent world history. This collection of essays by leading international experts offers an up-to-date, comprehensive history and analyses of multiple cases of genocide and genocidal acts, with a focus on the twentieth century. The book contains studies of the Armenian genocide, the victims of Stalinist terror, the Holocaust, and Imperial Japan. Several authors explore colonialism and address the fate of the indigenous peoples in Africa, North America, and Australia. As well, there is extensive coverage of the post-1945 period, including the atrocities in the former Yugoslavia, Bali, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, East Timor, and Guatemala. The book emphasizes the importance of comparative analysis and theoretical discussion, and it raises new questions about the difficult challenges for modernity constituted by genocide and other mass crimes.

Books By Author Robert Gellately

Stalin's Curse by Robert Gellately Stalin's Curse, Paperback (February 2016)

The story of how Stalin ruthlessly built his 'Red Empire' in the aftermath of World War II - and what inspired him to build it.

Lenin, Stalin and Hitler by Robert Gellately Lenin, Stalin and Hitler, Paperback (August 2008)

Between 1914 and 1945 European society was in almost continuous upheaval, enduring two world wars, the Russian Revolution, the Holocaust and the rise and fall of the Third Reich. This title argues that these tragedies are all inextricably linked and that to consider them as discrete events is to misunderstand their entire genesis and character.

Backing Hitler by Robert Gellately Backing Hitler, Paperback (March 2002)

Hitler won support even as he established the Gestapo and concentration camps. What has been in dispute is exactly what the Germans knew about these camps, and how they were involved. The author traces the story from 1933, and shows how war and the prospect of defeat radicalized Nazism.

Social Outsiders in Nazi Germany by Robert Gellately Social Outsiders in Nazi Germany, Paperback (May 2001)

When Hitler assumed power in 1933, he and other Nazis had firm ideas on what they called a racially pure "community of the people." This work includes eesays that explore the political strategies used by the Third Reich to gain support for its ideologies and programs, and each following essay concentrates on one group of outsiders.
