About this product
- DescriptionLarry May examines the rmative and conceptual problems concerning the crime of gecide. Gecide arises out of the worst of horrors. Legally, however, the unique character of gecide is reduced to a technical requirement, that the perpetrator's act manifest an intention to destroy a protected group. From this definition, many puzzles arise. How are groups to be identified and why are only four groups subject to gecide? What is the harm of destroying a group and why is this harm thought to be independent of killing many people? How can a person in the dock, as an individual, be responsible for a collective crime like gecide? How should we understand the specific crimes associated with gecide, especially instigation, incitement, and complicity? Paying special attention to the recent case law concerning the Rwanda gecide, May offers the first philosophical exploration of the crime of gecide in international criminal law.
