Sources of Contemporary Genocide by John Bart Gerald, graphics by Julie Maas. Gerald & Maas / Tablo Pty Ltd., 2020. ISBN 9781922439604, paper. 458 pages. ISBN 9781922439598, e-book.
sources of contemporary genocide by john bart gerald(
A radical look at indications of contemporary genocide, focusing on the United States, Canada, France, Myanmar, Libya, Guatemala, South Africa, Sudan, Greece, Central African Republic, Ukraine, Israel/Palestine, Cameroon, Haiti, Democratic Republic of Congo, Venezuela, among other countries, and how the risk of genocide has become normalized in our thinking.

These sequences of history further the recognition of genocide so we might avoid complicity and confront the atrocities of our times. An abundance of endnotes helps verify facts which history may try to suppress to hide evidence of crimes. The Convention on Genocide has no statute of limitations. Inexpensive e-book versions of the work are available through most book services.
In 2001 Gerald began writing the three thousand page, a website for the prevention of genocide where much of this work appears as sequential entries searching for why genocides occur. Maas’s images come from her notebooks of drawings and sketches for etchings and paintings through the years. In 1989 their small press of Gerald & Maas published the United Nations Convention on Genocide with supporting documents when it was out of print at the U.N.
The Canadian revised edition appeared from Ottawa in 1996 and remains available online at no charge. Gerald’s early work appeared as novels with Viking and F.S.&G., and widely anthologized antiwar stories. His teaching has included two years as a Briggs Copeland Lecturer at Harvard. Maas’s artwork appeared with WIN (WRL) where she was an art director during Vietnam, FOR, Sesame Street, Scholastic, Beacon Press, Atheneum, Harcourt Brace, Knopf / Random, and Gerald & Maas. From N.Y.C., both now live and work in Montreal.
