Description: »The aim of this bibliography, comprising more than 6,000 entries, is to facilitate and promote the research and writing of legal scholars, students and human rights activists in the fields of ethnic cleansing, genocide and sexual violence during national and international armed conflicts. It provides an overview of carefully selected socio-legal materials published in English and other European languages on ethnic cleansing, genocide and sexual violence during armed conflict in the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. This timely project, which commemorates the tenth anniversary of the ethnic cleansing and genocide in the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, has a great deal of interest to academics and those who are active in conflict/dispute settlement efforts in war-torn areas of the world.
The entire bibliography is alphabetically organized and sequentially numbered. Entries are arranged by format under eleven main headings, with each heading divided into different sub-headings. Books, collections of essays, periodical articles, addresses, interviews, proceedings, dissertations, and manuscripts are arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the family name of the author/editor. Encyclopedia articles, treaties, national agreements, decisions, declarations, and legislations, government documents, NGO documents, professional associations’ documents, audio-visual materials, and press releases are organized alphabetically by the first letter of the document’s title. In some cases, particularly for United Nations documents, entries are arranged in chronological order.
To facilitate searching this bibliography, all material is organized in a detailed table of contents, and an author/editor index is provided at the end of the volume. This index is arranged according to the alphabetical order of the author/ editor’s last name and refers to the number of each entry listed under that name in the body of the bibliography.« (Source: Edward Mellen Press)
