Greetings to all,
I am teaching a history&film course titled Genocide/Mass Killing in the Modern World. Among other readings, I plan to use the Totten and Parsons edited book for background/info on specific cases of genocide. Has anyone prepared reading quiz questions based on chapters in this book (or perhaps on the whole book) that you are willing to share with me? I will cite the source if you wish.

Some of you may have seen the TV ad which extols Oklahoma City and features Lisa Billy, a Republican State Rep and member of the Chickasaw nation, which is itself listed as the sponsor of the ad. The wonders of OKC are described as reflecting a "collision of cultures more than one hundred years ago."
Indeed. I wonder how the Chickaw would have described that "collision" in the 1830s?

Just wondering if anyone out there is interested in the under researched Holocaust experience of Robert Briscoe; a Dublin-born Jew who was the only T.D. (M.P.) in an overwhelmingly Catholic-nationalist 1930s and 1940s Irish political culture. He was a founding member of Eamon de Valera's constitutional nationalist Fianna Fáil party in 1926; this followed a senior role as a an IRA activist in the War of Independence where he was based in Berlin as a gun-runner.
