This volume is the result of the conference on Ethnic Cleansing in Twentieth Century Europe held at Duquesne University in November 2000. The conference brought together sixty scholars, primarily historians but also specialists in other fields, as well as survivors of ethnic cleansing from seven different countries who presented forty-eight papers.

The volume encompasses a rich array of case studies, behaviors, origins and patterns, addressing such topics as "redrawing the ethnic map" in North America from 1536 to 1946, the twentieth century's first genocide (Armenia 1915-16), ethnic cleansing in World War II and its aftermath, or recent developments in Kosovo.
