Resisting Genocide: The Multiple Forms of Rescue

Front Cover

Columbia University Press, Feb 10, 2011 - Political Science - 160 pages
Based on three absorbing case studies-the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, and the slaughter of the Tutsi in Rwanda-this volume marks the first international, comparative, and multidisciplinary attempt to situate rescue as a research object. The result is an exceptionally rich and disturbing volume that reveals an essential historical truth: while it might be impossible to isolate the factors that turn an individual into a rescuer, informal underground networks, however fragile, inevitably form the moment genocide appears. Compiled by three leaders in genocide studies, this collection features thirty contributors from eleven countries and maps the characteristics of an enduring phenomenon.
