Description - The Politics of Annihilation: A Genealogy of Genocide by Benjamin Meiches

How did a powerful concept in international justice evolve into an inequitable response to mass suffering? For a term coined just seventy-five years ago, genocide has become a remarkably potent idea. But has it transformed from a truly novel vision for international justice into a conservative, even inaccessible term?

Benjamin Meiches traces how the concept of genocide came to acquire such significance on the global political stage. By mapping the multiplicity of forces that entangle the concept in larger assemblages of power, he provides a new understanding of how the language of genocide impacts contemporary political life, especially as a means of protesting the social conditions that produce mass violence.
