Baker & Taylor
A deconstruction of the practice of genocide as reflected by the Armenian, Rwandan, and European Holocaust mass killings evaluates its causes and consequences both to victims and the world at large, in a sociological critique that links the psychology of bullying behaviors to community support of murder while proposing specific solutions to eliminating genocide.

Perseus Publishing
From best-selling author Barbara Coloroso comes a timely and essential book about genocide. Through an examination of three clearly defined genocides ? the Armenian and Rwandan genocides, and the European Holocaust ? Coloroso deconstructs the causes and consequences, both to its immediate victims and to the fabric of the world at large, and proposes the conditions that must exist in order to eradicate this evil from the world. Coloroso is well known for her best-selling books that explore why children bully. In Extraordinary Evil she builds upon that research to explain why the impulse to bully is mirrored by the act of genocide. By linking the psychology of the bully to the motivation that leads a community to murder, Coloroso provides devastating and vital insight into why people kill their neighbors. Based on the author's 15 years of research and extensive travel, Extraordinary Evil is an urgently needed work in an age when acts of genocide seem to occur more frequently and are in the public's consciousness more than ever before.
