History Lecturer Edits Genocide Book
Nicolas A. Robins, lecturer in history, is lead editor of the book Genocides by the Oppressed: Subaltern Genocide in Theory and Practice, published by Indiana University Press.
The book examines how victimized groups can become killers. It contains Robins’ work on three Indian uprisings: the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, the Great Rebellion of 1780-82 in Peru and Upper Peru, and the Caste War of Yucatan, Mexico, from 1847 to 1900.
Robins collaborated with Adam Jones, associate professor of political science at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna. Robins’ previous book, Native Insurgencies and the Genocidal Impulse in the Americas, was released in 2005.
