David Fisher, Kings College London Alex Bellamy provides a detailed compendium of massacres over the last 200 years... [T]his is a masterly, judicious and painstakingly researched survey of massacres over the last two centuries. It will provide an invaluable quarry for anyone interested in the ethics, legality or politics of war. The books central message on the reality but fragility of moral progress is an important one for which it deserves to be widely read.


Survival This book about the coexistence of mass atrocities with the norm of civilian immunity from the nineteenth century to our time, and their evolution and mutual influence, is his [Alex J. Bellamy] best work yet. Rarely has such a painful and sensitive subject been investigated so seriously, thoroughly, clearly and impartially.
