Oh the Inhumanity.


Over the time I’ve been working on my Masters in Human Rights I’ve come to realize that studying genocide causes me to read books of a slightly different nature than what most of my fellow grad students are reading for their theses.

Therefore, I’ve come to the conclusion that my books are competing with each other for most depressing title:

Titles include We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, A Problem from Hell: America in the Age of Genocide, Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, How Can We Commit The Unthinkable?: Genocide, the Human Cancer, The Lucifer Effect: How Good People Turn Evil, Becoming Evil: How Ordinary People Commit Genocide and Mass Killing, Why Did They Kill? Cambodia in the Shadow of Genocide, Shake Hands With the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, Conspiracy to Murder: The Rwandan Genocide, The Holocaust and Other Genocides, Genocide, Century of Genocide: Critical Essays and Eyewitness Accounts, Destined for Evil?, The Media and The Rwandan Genocide, Mass Hate: The Global Rise of Genocide and Terror, Why Not Kill Them All? The Logic and Prevention of Mass Political Murder, Justice on the Grass: Three Rwandan Journalists, Their Trial for War Crimes, and a Nation’s Quest for Redemption, Genocide and Human Rights

I have to tell you, my works cited pages always look awesome.

  1. Shahar: Those are two of the better written books, actually.

    Aron: ARON!! HI!

    Mikhail: My autobiography would be called “How Good People Turn Evil” or, alternatively, as has been discussed, I will rewrite “Becoming Evil: How Ordinary People Commit Genocide and Mass Killing” as an instruction manual…

  2. Actually, I wasn’t being sarcastic, those are my favorite titles. In fact, if I saw either of those on a shelf at a bookstore I’d probably buy both of them regardless of the content.

    Mikhail, the working title for my autobiography is simply “Rigor Mortis.”
