SHERMAN AND ISRAEL W. CHARNY. This database has been compiled on an IBM-compatable PC using Procite, one of the most widely acclaimed bibliographic database managers on personal computers. The database, which has been largely funded by the U.S. Institute of Peace, Washington, D.C. (a federal agency), assembles literature especially from 1980 onwards, the period which has seen the most significant steps forward in the emerging field of study of genocide as well as a limited number of citations from earlier years. The database has been compiled from a multitude of international sources including the institute's own published bibliographies (Genocide: A Critical Bibliographic Review, Charny, I.W. [Ed], Volume 1, 1988 and Volumne 2, 1992), an invited panel of distinguished scholars, and various online databases. The fields covered in this interdisciplinary database include religion, psychology, sociology, law, medicine, history, economics, political science, anthropology, education, and philosophy. The database contains some 9000 unique bibliographic citations of books, chapters of books, book reviews, journal articles, and dissertations, most with abstracts, and a unique controlled index word scheme developed specifically for this database. This first-of-a-kind database is without doubt the most comprehensive source of literature in this rapidly evolving area of research and will be an invaluable source for scholars accessing information on this crucial field. This database will be available on diskettes to research institutions, libraries and scholars. The availability on Procite, with its advanced searching and formatting capabilities, will further enhance research. For more information on subscriptions to the database, write Marc I. Sherman, M.L.S., Project Director, or Pauline Cooper, Project Coordinator, at the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide, POB 10311, 91102 Jerusalem, Israel. Fax: 972-2-720424.
