Media Coverage

Articles and reviews.

"I've just completed going through your book for a second time (highlighting, underlining, etc. this time around), and wanted to congratulate you on a wonderful success! First of all, it's such an important contribution. Secondly, it never reads like a typical dry text. Most importantly -- and very selfishly -- it is going to be of inestimable value to my course in January. I am very excited to be able to use it as the primary text with my students next semester."
- Marc Greenside, Teacher
Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, New York City

"It is absolutely the perfect textbook that I have been looking for for years, and I will use it the next time I teach my genocide course."
- Rhoda E. Howard-Hassmann, Canada Research Chair in International Human Rights
Global Studies Program, Wilfrid Laurier University
