In this remarkable and timely new book, bestselling author Barbara Coloroso turns her attention to genocide: what it means; where it begins; where it must end.

Through an examination of three clearly defined genocides—of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire; the Jews, Roma, and Sinti in Europe; and the Tutsi in Rwanda—Coloroso deconstructs the causes of genocide and its consequences, both to the immediate victims and to the fabric of the world at large, and proposes the conditions that must exist in order to eradicate this evil from the world.

Based on the author’s twenty years of research and extensive travel, Extraordinary Evil is an urgently needed work in an age when acts of genocide seem to occur more frequently and are in the public’s consciousness more than ever before. "Barbara Coloroso has spent her entire life fighting for social justice and equality. Her work is an astonishing encyclopedia of causes: from the bullying of children to the genocide in Rwanda. Nothing escapes the unsparing force of her intellect, the gentle generosity of her soul, and her passion to shape a better world." —Stephen Lewis
