Genocide is a topic beset by ambiguities over meaning and double standards. In this stimulating and gripping history, William Rubinstein sets out to clarify the meaning of the term genocide and its historical evolution, and provides a working definition that informs the rest of the book. He makes the important argument that each instance of genocide is best understood within a particular historical framework and provides an original chronology of these distinct frameworks. In the final part of the book he critically examines a number of alleged past and recent genocides: from native Americans, slavery, the Irish famine, homosexuals and gypsies in the Nazi concentration camps, Yugoslavia, Rwanda through to the claims of pro-lifers and anti-abortionists.

THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF ADDICTIONS AND THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF ADDICTION MEDICINE HAS NEVER EXISTED, EXCEPT ON PAPER , MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE AKA PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD 2020 , LIL DOG AKA CARL SMITH L..H.M.C.of NEW HORIZON HOUSE AND DAMION SMITH OF FRESH START RECOVERY COALITION ARE CRIMINALS !!!!!!!!!
I was in a AA meeting once and the speaker mentioned Dr Kishore, and the entire room erupted into laughter. I saw him back in the late 90s and he was a quack then. He was FAR from free. He had been fined years ago because when you sat in his waiting room (an hour was considered quick) he'd bill the insurance co's for that time. Then once you saw him he'd tell you what a great guy he was for working with addicts. Ive been clean for over 10 years now and those professionals who really helped me were ones that didnt need to continiously pat themselves on the back. Addicts are a nightmare to work with, and I commend all those that put up with it all to help those in need. But theres no way you're ever going to convince me Kishore was one of those people.
This Fool Punyamurtula Kishore MD aka MAD DOG was never licensed by Mass. Dept of Public Health to practice Addiction Medicine. Punyamurtula Kishore MD aka MAD Dog Millionaire is a fraud , The American College of Addiction Medicine and the National Library of Addiction has never existed except on paper. Punyamurtula Kishore has been indicted by 3 Grand Juries for Medical Insurance Fraud , bribery and kickbacks.
MAD DOG was involved in Corruption when he was the Assistant Medical Director at the Massachusetts Dept. of Correction , Martha Eliot Health Ctr , Roxbury Comprehensive Health Ctr. and his own Medical Practice , Preventive Medicine Associates.formerly Addiction Medicine Associates. He used two entities he created on paper that never existed called the National library of Addictions and the American College of Addiction Medicine to advocate his emergence in the field of addiction medicine. This unscrupulous MD used and exploited his patients and employees for financial wealth. The only thing that MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE aka Punyamurtula Kishore cared about was making money at the expense of human misery

MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE AKA PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD
Suspended doctor plans to appealApril 13, 2014, Brookline, MA — A Brookline doctor with Cape ties whose license was temporarily suspended Wednesday
plans to appeal, his attorney said in an email Saturday.
The state Board of Registration in Medicine suspended the license of Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore after finding that he posed "an immediate and serious threat to the public health, safety and welfare." Kishore closed clinics in 2011 without notifying patients in advance, according to the board.
Kishore operated several drug treatment offices on the Cape and Islands.
He has the right to appeal the suspension within seven days of the board's decision.
Kishore also faces a Medicaid fraud charge on allegations that he bribed the owner of sober houses with $597,000 in insurance kickbacks, to send patients needing urine screens to his treatment centers.
A motions hearing on the charge is set for May 19 in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston, according to a spokesman for Attorney General Martha Coakley. Coakley led a grand jury investigation that targeted Kishore.
He ran a 30-office chain known as Preventive Medicine Associates Inc.
"The attorney general's office has yet to bring Kishore's case to trial, instead continuing the case 11 times and counting," attorney Harold Jacobi of Lexington said, in a written response to the Times on behalf of Kishore. "Dr. Kishore is confident of acquittal and hopes to have his license reinstated on appeal or when he defeats the criminal allegations."
A website in support of Kishore has been set up at kishoresstory.info.
Kishore, an Indian national in the United States as a permanent resident, was ordered to surrender his passport because he is considered a flight risk.
