The politics of genocide - Edward Herman and David Peterson

Herman and Peterson review the Western media's response to several different bloodbaths and criticize how the characterization, language, and ultimately policy responses are shaped by the narratives drafted in support of U.S. client states and agents. We do not necessarily agree with all of it but reproduce it for reference.

Note that several reviews of the book accuse Herman of going beyond a contextualisation of US foreign policy responses to active genocide denial. For example Gerald Caplan in Pambazuka.
