Summary
"In 1948, the United Nations established the Genocide Convention to legally define genocide as actions intended to destroy a particular group of people based on race, religion, ethnicity, and other defining characteristics. The goal was to prevent and punish future acts of genocide, but a number of mass killings have followed since its establishment, and in some situations whether these executions qualify as genocides is surprisingly unclear. The viewpoints in this title explore what genocide is and isn't, as well as historical and contemporary examples of genocide. They also examine potential political and social solutions to prevent future genocides"--
