summary
A Rhetorical Crime shows how, over the course of the Cold War era, genocide morphed from a legal concept into a political discourse used in international propaganda battles. Through a unique comparative analysis of U.S. and Soviet statements on genocide, Weiss-Wendt investigates why their moral posturing far exceeded their humanitarian action.
