From the Publisher

In her award-winning interrogation of the last century of American history, Samantha Power-a former Balkan war correspondent and founding executive director of Harvard's Carr Center for Human Rights Policy-asks the haunting question: Why do American leaders who vow "never again" repeatedly fail to stop genocide?
