About this product
- DescriptionGecide has scarred human societies since Antiquity. In the modern era, gecide has been a global phemen: from massacres in colonial America, Africa, and Australia to the Holocaust of European Jewry and mass death in Maoist China. In recent years, the discipline of 'gecide studies' has developed to offer analysis and comprehension. The Oxford Handbook of Gecide Studies is the first book to subject both gecide and the young discipline it has spawned to systematic, in-depth investigation. Thirty-four rewned experts study gecide through the ages by taking regional, thematic, and disciplinary-specific approaches. Chapters examine secessionist and political gecides in modern Asia. Others treat the violent dynamics of European colonialism in Africa, the complex ethnic geography of the Great Lakes region, and the structural instability of the continent's rthern horn. South and North America receive detailed coverage, as do the Ottoman Empire, Nazi-occupied Europe, and post-communist Eastern Europe. Sustained attention is paid to themes like gender, memory, the state, culture, ethnic cleansing, military intervention, the United Nations, and prosecutions. The work is multi-disciplinary, featuring the work of historians, anthropologists, lawyers, political scientists, sociologists, and philosophers. Uniquely combining empirical reconstruction and conceptual analysis, this Handbook presents and analyses regions of gecide and the entire field of 'gecide studies' in one substantial volume.
