Edited by:
  • Adam Jones - University of British Columbia, Canada

December 2008 | 1 664 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The SAGE Library of International Relations brings together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in International Relations.

Each multi-volume set represents a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an editor or editorial team of renowned international stature.

They also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future.

This series is designed to be a 'gold standard' for university libraries throughout the world with an interest in International Relations.

This four-volume set provides a comprehensive collection of classic and contemporary works on genocide sourced from a wide range of disciplines including international relations, international law, anthropology, psychology, history and sociology.

Volume I highlights the legal framings of genocide and deploys some of the key theoretical contributions of the academic field of comparative genocide studies.

Volume II seeks to provide both an empirical and an argumentative survey of key genocides in human history, particularly those of the modern period.

Volume III focuses on the rich debates over human beings' agency in genocide, and the political, psychological, sociological, and anthropological perspectives that illuminate it.

Volume IV explores diverse strategies of genocide prevention, and the spirited debate over humanitarian intervention and post-genocide peace building and restitution.
