Title page; Preface; Contents; Large-Scale War Victimization and Terrorism; General Understanding and Victimological Research of Large-Scale Victimization; Role of the International Criminal Justice from the Perspective of Victims; Victim Assistance and Restorative Justice in Post-Conflict Societies; Necessity to Reconstruct War-Affected Communities in Order to Counter-Terrorism; Author Index.
Summary: This publication presents a subject that is, unfortunately, as significant today as it was two years ago. Sadly, this continuing relevance seems to confirm the views of the German radical pacifist Kurt Tucholsky, who stated in response to the atrocities and sufferings of WWI: ''But men never ever learnt from history, and they will not do so in the future. Hic Rhodus!'' Recent events in Iraq, the Middle East, East Timor or the Democratic Republic of Congo, and possible links regarding issues of terrorism, raise the question what criminological and victimological research offers in assisting to.
