The Encyclopedia spans the globe to explain the issues behind crimes against humanity and human rights issues as they relate to individual countries and the world at large. It traces the history of events that qualify as genocide and crimes against humanity. From torture and war crimes to ethnocide and linguistic genocide, the forms of persecution are examined. Also defined are ideas such as intent, complicity and incitement. Biographical entries, profiles perpetrators and those who have sought to bring such criminals to justice. The encyclopedia explains international laws and law proceedings aimed at ending genocide and crimes against humanity and provides a comprehensive survey of the issues surrounding genocide. The Holocaust receives extensive attention, but so too do other modern atrocities. Coverage is not limited to the modern era, but includes discussions of Rome's treatment of Carthage, the campaigns of Genghis Khan, the Spanish Inquisition and the Atlantic slave trade. Other essays examine the question of whether the definition of genocide applies to the forced removal of Native Americans or the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Also explored is the susceptibility to abuse of such groups as women, children, homosexuals or the disabled. The sociology and psychology of victims, perpetrators and survivors is also covered. From the Supreme Court decision on the Amistad slave captives to the prosecution of Serbian war criminals, a selection of historical documents traces the extension of protections to civilian populations in international law.
