About this product
- DescriptionIn this highly controversial and original work, Damien Short systematically rethinks how gecide is and should be defined. Rather than focusing solely on a narrow conception of gecide as direct mass-killing, through close empirical analysis of a number of under-discussed case studies - including Palestine, Sri Lanka, Australia and Alberta, Canada - the book reveals the key role played by settler colonialism, capitalism, finite resources and the ecological crisis in driving gecidal social death on a global scale.
- Author BiographyDamien Short is a reader in human rights at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. He is director of the school's Human Rights Consortium and Extreme Energy Initiative and editor in chief of the International Journal of Human Rights.
