Redefining Genocide: Settler Colonialism, Social Death and Ecocide

Zed Books Ltd., 15 jun 2016 - 272 páginas
In this highly controversial and original work, Damien Short systematically rethinks how genocide is and should be defined.

Rather than focusing solely on a narrow conception of genocide as direct mass-killing, through close empirical analysis of a number of under-discussed case studies – including Palestine, Sri Lanka, Australia and Alberta, Canada – the book reveals the key role played by settler colonialism, capitalism, finite resources and the ecological crisis in driving genocidal social death on a global scale.
