Over the past decade genocide studies have, rightly so, become an independent field of study, mainly as a result of the tragic events that took place in Rwanda in 1994. Apart from the objective study of the phenomenon of genocide, much emphasis is placed on efforts to prevent it. This welcome development has resulted in intense academic research, as well as the institutionalisation of the crime of genocide in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the appointment of a special advisor for the prevention of genocide by the United Nations Secretary-General. This work forms part of the burgeoning literature on the subject.
