A Biographical Encyclopedia of Contemporary Genocide Portraits of Evil and Good


A Biographical Encyclopedia of Contemporary Genocide Portraits of Evil and Good by Paul R. Bartrop

This book documents the devastating effects of genocide in the world's most destructive human environments since the end of World War II and explores why such events still occur.


This encyclopedia presents a variety of key individuals to study with respect to genocidal acts. The succinct text offers a valuable starting point for further study as well as an informative read for those generally interested in the unfortunate subject matter. - Library Journal Although many well-known personalities are covered, the inclusion of those who tried to prevent genocide provides readers with an added (and welcomed) dimension to genocide studies and is an admirable feature of this book. The thematic contents and references make it easier for those interested in further study within a specific area of interest. Educators looking for a summary of contemporary events could use the introduction with little modification. . . . This volume is a good starting point for researchers and is recommended for most libraries. - Booklist This work is highly recommended for libraries serving high school students, undergraduates, and the general public. - ARBA In this well-designed reference book, seasoned scholar of genocide Bartrop provides biographical profiles of 170 individuals who perpetrated, attempted to prevent, or were in some other significant way involved in selected atrocities since 1945. . . . This volume offers a wealth of accessible information for anyone interested in exploring the darkest episodes of the post-WWII era. Summing Up: Highly recommended. - Choice
