"A searing investigation into genocide, a phenomenon that seems so familiar and understood, but that needs to be rethought from the beginning. Goldhagen [...] challenges much of what we think of genocide [...]. This book takes the readers into the heart of this most [...] inhuman practice and indelibly transforms the way we understand genocide and eliminationism. In doing so, the book is a call to, and a program of, action. It offers real hope that we might at least eradicate this most catastrophic scourge of humankind.
