Modern Genocide [4 volumes]: The Definitive Resource and Document Collection

Paul R. Bartrop and Steven Leonard Jacobs.
Santa Barbara, California: ABC-CLIO, 2014, 2270 pages. ISBN 978-1610693639.

Description:
The coverage of each genocide includes an introductory overview, an explanation of the causes, consequences, perpetrators, victims, and bystanders; the international reaction; a timeline of events; an Analyze section that poses tough questions for readers to consider and provides scholarly, pro-and-con responses to these historical conundrums; and reference entries. This integrated examination of genocides occurring in the modern era not only presents an unprecedented research tool on the subject but also challenges the readers to go back and examine other events historically and, consequently, consider important questions about human society in the present and the future.
