Readership: This book will be embraced by scholars, students, researchers, and those working in the fields of
genocide, violent conflict, and terrorism, as well as in intergroup relations. Additionally, the book will find an audience among people doing practical work in these fields, including people in the State Department, foreign ministries, and at the CIA, as well as people in the many NGOs doing work in these fields. Finally, the book very much aims to promote "active bystandership" by citizens, making the book a fascinating read for anyone interested in these important issues, including the media, whose methods of presenting events can contribute to violence, or make it less likely.
