[This book] provides a window into the urgent, complex, and interdisciplinary dialogues underway in Genocide Studies.
- Jobb Arnold, Peace Research
Understanding Atrocities helps us to think ?about how we think about the past,? and doesn?t offer easy passe-partouts for unlocking or framing humanity?s monstrous history and its representation. Instead, this book provides insightful and necessary roadmaps for our encounters with the demonic events themselves, as well as the vectors and exchanges that process our memory.
-Piet Defraeye, University of Alberta, Universiteit Antwerpen
Understanding Atrocities is a welcome addition to genocide and atrocities scholarship that introduces new voices, approaches, and topics to a growing global field of research. The well-chosen chapters are perfect illustrations of the breadth and dynamism of contemporary genocide studies.
-Andrew Woolford, University of Manitoba, author of ?This Benevolent Experiment?: Indigenous Boarding Schools, Genocide and Redress in North America
