Samantha Power


“American Responses to Genocide”


Samantha Power, from the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Harvard University, has recently attracted a great deal of attention after she published a well-researched article in The Atlantic Monthly of September 2001, called “Bystanders to Genocide,” about the sad history of the U.S. response to the Rwandan genocide.

At Bard she presented the arguments of the larger project from which the Atlantic piece is drawn, a book-length study of American responses to mass murder in Armenia, the Holocaust, Cambodia, Kurdistan, Bosnia, and Rwanda, among others.
