PSN Book Launch Recording Now Online!

Watch the excellent discussion of Jonathan Leader Maynard’s Ideology and Mass Killing!

The 2022/2023 PSN New Books in Perpetrator Studies kicked off on November 15, 2022 with a discussion of Jonathan Leader Maynard’s Ideology and Mass Killing: The Radicalized Security Politics of Genocides and Deadly Atrocities (Oxford University Press, 2022). The book is the first volume to offer a dedicated, comparative theory of ideology’s role in mass killing, while also developing a powerful new account of how ideology affects violence and politics more generally.

The respondents were Hollie Nyseth Nzitatira and Alexander Bellamy.

The event was moderated by Tim Williams.
