Reviews

"Manus Midlarksy's highly ambitious, original and impressive book aspires to bring us closer to understanding genocide in the contemporary age...Written with controlled passion by a scholar deeply committed to using social science theory and methods to understand this highly emotional topic, The Killing Trap is an invaluable contribution to genocide studies." - Michael Barnett, University of Minnesota
With the exception of contributions by Barbara Harff, Ted Gurr, R.J. Rummel, and more recently Alan Kuperman, political scientists are underrepresented in the literature of comparative genocide studies. Manus Midlarsky's ambitious work represents a major attempt to bring the methodologies and core preoccupations of this field to bear on genocides of the past and future. The result is a deeply insightful, multifaceted volume that should interest any scholar and student of genocide. - Adam Jones, Yale University
