Description: In essays written for this book, distinguished contributors assess highly charged questions about the Holocaust: How can it be compared with other instances of genocide? What constitutes genocide? How should the international community respond? Some fear that if the Holocaust is seen as the worst case of genocide ever, its character will diminish the sufferings of other persecuted groups. Others argue that unless the Holocaust's uniqueness is established, the inevitable tendency will be to diminish its abiding significance. This edition includes new readings on the Cambodian and Rwandan genocides, common themes in genocide ideologies, and Iran's reaction to the Holocaust. In a world where genocide persists and the global community continues to struggle with international crime, prosecution, justice, reparation, and healing, the issues addressed in this book are as relevant as ever.
