"Will Genocide Ever End? is a valuable primer in the terrible and persistent problem of genocide in human society. The contributors shed their academic garb and intellectual jargon to share plainly what they know about the causes, perpetration, and prevention of genocide. This book will serve to alert and inform the consciences of students, politicians, activists, and citizens alike, enabling us all to become more aware of the risk of genocide and more able to prevent it."—Hugo Slim, Reader in International Humanitarianism, Oxford Brookes University, United Kingdom
