With Intent to Destroy: Reflecting on Genocide
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis text is an exploration of genocide which shows it to occur much closer to home than we in the West would like to believe. We tend to view ourselves as humane, rational and reasonable. This study of genocide exposes this enlightenment-based self-image as dangerous complacency.
PortraitBorn and educated in South Africa, Colin Tatz emigrated to Australia in 1961. The author of fifteen books and holder of several prestigious academic posts, he is currently Director of the Australian Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies based at the Shalom Institute, University of New South Wales.
Pressestimmen""This is an exciting and important book by Colin Tatz, a truth teller and bearer of much of the conscience of his adopted country. In releasing the intellectual and moral logjam around the issue of genocide, he makes vital links that may be unpalatable to some but are accurate and typically honest."" -- John Pilger, award-winning investigative journalist and film-maker "Colin Tatz is one of the world's foremost scholars of genocide. He applies the UN Convention without fear or favour, illuminating instances of mass murder and human destructiveness previously neglected by others." - Professor Robert Melson, author of Revolution and Genocide
