The Politics of Annihilation [BOOKS] ✴ The Politics of Annihilation ✻ Benjamin Meiches – Capitalsoftworks.co.uk How did a powerful concept in international justice evolve into an ineuitable response to mass sufferingFor a term coined just seventy five years ago genocide has become a remarkably potent idea But h How did a powerful concept in international justice evolve into an ineuitable response to mass sufferingFor a term coined just seventy five years ago genocide has become a remarkably potent idea But has it transformed from a truly novel vision for international justice into a conservative even inaccessible term The The Politics PDF \ Politics of Annihilation traces how the concept of genocide came to acuire such significance on the global political stage In doing so it reveals how the concept has been politically contested and refashioned over time It explores how these shifts implicitly impact what forms of mass violence are considered genocide and what forms are not Benjamin Meiches argues that the limited conception of genocide often rigidly understood as mass killing rooted in ethno religious identity has created legal and political institutions that do not adeuately respond to the diversity of mass violence In his insistence on the concept’s complexity he does not undermine the need for clear condemnations of such violence But neither does he allow genocide to become a static or timeless notion Meiches argues that the discourse on genocide has implicitly excluded many forms of violence from popular attention including cases ranging from contemporary Botswana and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the legacies of colonial politics in Haiti Canada and elsewhere to the effects of climate change on small island nations By mapping the multiplicity of forces that entangle the concept in larger assemblages of power The Politics of Annihilation gives us a new understanding of how the language of genocide impacts contemporary political life especially as a means of protesting the social conditions that produce mass violence.
