 Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd) 
On this show, Radio Basics interviews Edward Herman on his recent book 'The Politics of Genocide'. We discuss how Western imperialism has shaped the conception of genocide to suit its interests, downplaying mass killings by imperialism or its clients, and distoring, ignoring, or mythologizing other mass killings wherever its convenient. We discuss Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia, Sudan, Iraq, and Tamil Eelam.
