Reviews

Justice, compassion, courage, trust, humility - if such virtues deeply characterized individual lives and communities, human existence would be far less scarred by genocide, terrorism, poverty, torture and other human rights abuses that plague the twenty-first century. This well-edited collection of essays contains clear philosophical reflection that provides much-needed guidance for anyone and everyone who strives to support and extend the moral qualities that are necessary to amend the world.' - John Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights, Claremont McKenna College, USA
