The Times Literary Supplement (September 2002) says:
"Jones tells his story with verve and insight; he is neither romantic nor didactic,
and always highly readable. His eloquent and thoughtful portrait of a society contending
with the aftermath of a prolonged period of US intervention raises issues of concern to anyone
interested in international affairs." (Nicola Miller)
A wide-ranging interview with Carlos Fernando Chamorro,
former editor of the Sandinista party paper Barricada, on the experience
of revolutionary and post-revolutionary journalism in Nicaragua.
"Men of the Global South highlights a population group
which hardly figures in the literature of gender and development
-- or indeed in the literature of development in general. It describes
men in all their complexity and inconsistency -- violent and non-violent,
powerful and not powerful, straight and not straight, maintainers of tradition
and destroyers of it, as they really are and as they want and fear to be.
In doing so it fills a big gap in the literature, and raises a challenge
to the gender and development mainstream to explain why it overlooks
the gendered lives of men as well as women."
- Judy El-Bushra
Gendercide and Genocide
Vanderbilt University Press, 2004

Kosovo: Orders of Magnitude
Published in IDEA: A Journal of Social Issues, 5: 1 (2000)
A detailed examination of the scale and character of Serb atrocities

"A remarkable book that is immediately accessible for the novice in the field,
or students, and yet also engages with its topic in intellectually interesting ways
for the more seasoned reader. Helps chart the way forward for those already thinking about,
or tussling with, the horrors of humanity and the seemingly ever evolving capacity
to shock the conscience."
- James Gow, Professor of International Peace and Security, King's College London
"This is the best introductory text available to students
of genocide studies. Written in clear, elegant prose and supported by
a wealth of authoritative sources, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction
is likely to be come the gold standard by which all subsequent introductions
to this enormously important subject will be measured."
- Kenneth J. Campbell, University of Delaware;
author of Genocide and the Global Village
