Ed. by Graham C. Kinloch and Raj P. Mohan.

Algora Publishing


323 pages




Can genocide be a response to Westernization or resource inequities? Sociologists Kinloch (Florida State U.), who is from Zimbabwe, and Mohan (Auburn U., Alabama) treat genocide as a central issue in modern social science with policy implications. The 13 contributed chapters present conceptual, theoretical, and comparative approaches and case studies (e.g. of Rwanda, Tibet, Northern Ireland). Analytical frameworks include comparative sociology, moral philosophy, and critical theory.
