Leo Kuper, combining human concern with a broad historical background and legal skills, examines all the aspects of the question of genocide, with case studies including the fate of the Armenians in Turkey, the Jews in Europe, the Hutu in Africa, and many others. He gives the legislative history of the U.N. Convention on Genocide and deplores the failure of the international community to implement it, especially the international penal tribunal provided for in the Convention.
