Quiet genocide : Guatemala 1981-1983 by Comisión para el Esclarecimiento Histórico( Book )

"Quiet Genocide reviews the legal and historical case that genocide occurred in Guatemala in 1981-1983. It includes the full text of the genocide section of a United Nations sponsored Commission on Historical Clarification in Guatemala (CEH), brokered by the UN. In its final report, the CEH's rigorously reviewed abuses throughout the whole country. However, the memory of the Guatemalan dirty war, which predated the genocide and continued for over a decade of the heightened killing, has rapidly faded from international awareness. The book renders a historical picture of the 1948 Genocide Convention and its unique status in international law. It reminds readers of the difficulty of preventing and punishing genocide as illustrated by the ongoing tragedy of Darfur; anddiscusses the evolution of international and hybrid tribunals to prosecute genocide along with war crimes and crimes against humanity. Then, it sketches a brief history of Guatemala with a focus on genocide It explores how internal and global politics were an expression of structural violence, designed to ensure cheap, abundant, and quiescent Indian labor for coffee planters.a The volume provides the commission's general considerations, legal definitions, methodology, period of analysis, and victim groups, and finds that genocide had been perpetrated against five indigenous Guatemalan groups. By translating the genocide argument of the CEH into English and framing it in a lively, accessible way, this volume recovers the past, sets the record straight, and promotes accountability. This exploratory effort provides insight into the world of transitional justice and truth commissions, and valuable insights about how to engage with the question of genocide in the future. These findings shed light on a crucial and dark chapter of trans-American Cold War history, and will thus be of interest not only to scholars focused on Guatemala, but also on Central America and even more broadly, on the Cold War."--Provided by publisher

Tout commence par une rencontre avec trois familles. La première a le régime alimentaire standard. La deuxième est également omnivore, mais plus attentive aux conditions de production de la nourriture. La troisième est végane. Partant de leurs listes de courses respectives, on remonte toute la chaîne de production, au fil de rencontres avec des éleveurs, agriculteurs, pêcheurs, distributeurs, restaurateurs, experts, militants associatifs... afin de répondre aux questions essentielles liées à notre alimentation. Les OGM son-ils un progrès ou un danger ? Que subissent les animaux élevés ou pêchés pour la consommation ? Que penser du commerce équitable ? L'agriculture bio est-elle préférable à l'agriculture conventionnelle ? Faut-il acheter local ? Quels liens entre nos pratiques alimentaires et la faim dans le monde ? Qui paie les coûts cachés des aliments bon marché ? Après avoir parcouru cet ouvrage, vous saurez que ce que nous mangeons et la façon dont nous le produisons a des conséquences immenses sur les habitants de la planète, humains ou animaux, et sur les générations futures. Et vous saurez comment, sans être un héros, chacun de nous a le pouvoir de faire des choix alimentaires plus éthiques. Et vous comprendrez comment le pouvoir de faire des choix alimentaires plus éthiques est à portées de tous, et bien plus simplement qu'il n'y paraît. -- 4ème de couverture
