About this book

How does ideology in some states radicalise to such an extent as to become genocidal? Can the causes of radicalisation be seen as internal or external? Examining the ideological evolution in the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust and during the break up of Yugoslavia, Elisabeth Hope Murray seeks to answer these questions in this comparative work.

Reviews

“This is among the most theoretically based comparative studies of genocide, and its focus is one that has generally been neglected. … this book is a significant addition to genocide research literature and should lead to numerous dissertations that incorporate hypotheses it presents. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduate collections and above.” (P. G. Conway, Choice, Vol. 53 (5), January, 2016)
