The Politics of Genocide

The Politics of Genocide

Monthly Review Pr | April 1, 2010 | 159 pages

"In this brilliant expose of great power's lethal industry of lies, Edward Herman and David Peterson defend the right of us all to a truthful historical memory."-JOHN PILGER, journalist and filmmaker "Why so much talk in recent years about 'genocide' as a major threat? Perhaps because, while extremely rare, genocide represents an intentional evil in comparison to which the far more frequent massacres committed by 'our' side fade into innocent blunders. Herman and Peterson describe the double standards used to distinguish evil `genocide' from the slaughter wrought by the United States and its allies as mere collateral damage."-DIANA JOHNSTONE, author of Fools' Crusade: Yugoslavia, NATO, and Western Delusions "Concise and devastating, this book turns the media wallpaper inside-out, debunking the most sacred conceits while showing us the intellectual and moral rot of Washington's political structures. Herman and Peterson will make readers yearn for a political culture that embraces a single standard of human rights instead of selectively wielding such words as 'massacre' and 'genocide.'"-NORMAN SOLOMON, author of War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death
