Pub. Date:
Simon (Illinois State U.) presents a normative and prescriptive legal analysis of genocide. Contending that international law has wrongly modeled its treatment of genocide on national criminal law, which focuses on individual responsibility, he presents chapters providing what he views as a more accurate analysis of the different elements constituting the crime of genocide--the criminal act (massive killings), criminal intent (organizational policies), motive (institutionalized hatred), victims (targeted groups defined by the perpetrator), and criminal agent (primarily organizations)--and considering the implications of such analysis for reformulating international legal approaches to the crime of genocide.
