Ideologies of War, Genocide & Terror
Part I: Alvarez-Gullestad
A curator, traditionally, is the keeper of a cultural heritage institution (e.g., gallery, museum or library)—a specialist charged with selecting, managing and interpreting heritage material.

On the web, curation is about selecting the best content. One of the mandates of the Library of Social Science is to present the world’s best scholarship to our readers—and to help you to make sense of it.

Our Ideologies of War, Genocide & Terror website—founded in 2006—has developed a reputation as one of the most important resources on the web for information on the sources and meanings of collective forms of violence. Through a process of searching, studying and sifting, we have identified many of the essential works on this topic.

Our website now contains 187 entries by 127 authors—consisting of source documents, book chapters and excerpts, papers, statistics, photos and videos.

This is the first of three Newsletters in which we present entries
appearing on our Ideologies of War, Genocide & Terror Website.
