The failure to adequately respond on the part of the major Western superpowers to the atrocities in the Balkans constitutes a major moral and political scandal. In "Genocide After Emotion" Mestrovic and the contributors thoroughly interrogate the war, its media coverage and response in the West. The result is alarming, both for the progress of the war and for the condition of our society today: the authors argue that the West is suffering from a 'postemotional' condition - we are beyond caring about anything anymore.
This book contains contributions from Philip J. Cohen, Norman Cigar, Slaven Letica, James J. Sadkovich, C.G. Schoenfeld, Thomas Cushman and Igor Primoratz.
"An important and original study of the response of the West to the genocide in the Balkan wars tearing apart the former Yugoslavia. Mestrovic and his team offer original interpretations of the events and break new theoretical ground, proposing concepts that will help illuminate some features of our present social constellation."
