A title in The Lawbook Exchange series, Foundations of theLaws of War, General Editor Joseph Perkovich. In thispathbreaking study Polish emigre Raphael Lemkin coined theterm "genocide" and defined it is a subject of internationallaw. While the term has come to mean the extermination ofpeople, Lemkin used it to describe all programs that soughtto increase "Aryan" birthrate while working to exterminatethe social, cultural and economic independence ofnon-Germanic peoples. This study was an elaboration ofideas he first proposed in 1933 in his address to the FifthInternational Conference for the Unification of Penal Law(1933), which argued that attacks on racial, religious andethnic groups should be considered international crimes.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
