Genocide on the Drina River

This chapter presents an overview and discussion of key scholarly literature on historical cases of genocide and theories regarding its planning and implementation. A review of the development of recognition of genocide, from “a crime without a name” to a focus of international law and intervention, is followed by analysis of comparative genocide research, especially as it relates to study of the Holocaust. Then, the mechanisms necessary for the planning and implementation of genocide – including the emergence of specific ideological and structural elements – are examined, and eight phases of genocide are introduced and discussed. From here, the author develops her own theoretical framework for understanding genocide and its denial, as a basis for analysis of seven case studies introduced in chapter four.

Keywords:   Genocide, International Law, Holocaust, Phases of Genocide, Genocide Denial
