    In 1948, three years after the Holocaust, the United Nations passed the Genocide Convention, obliging the international community to prevent or halt and punish what had been 'a crime without a name'. Since then, however, genocide has recurred repeatedly; tracing its history since 1945, this study analyses a number of cases and discusses key issues, including how genocide is defined, the different roles of perpetrators, bystanders, victims and rescuers, and the question of 'humanitarian intervention'.
