Editorial Reviews


"For policy-makers responsible for reconstructing Iraq or seeking to follow a road map to peace in the Middle East as well as for lay people who care about international relations, this book offers needed reflection on the conditions necessary for resolution of intense and long-standing conflicts. . . . Through a unique blend of legal and political theory and a fascinating variety of insights and connections, the authors of Breaking the Cycles of Hatred have produced a highly commendable set of essays that provide a thoughtful perspective for the events of our day. They merit reading and re-reading."--Annette Johnson, The New York Law Journal

From the Inside Flap

"Minow's essays embody great strength, clarity, and coherence. She manages to move far beyond her own earlier pathbreaking work. What makes this volume unique is the fascinatingly wide variety of connections and insights triggered by Minow's first-rate contribution. The book surely will be of great interest to general readers as well as to specialists in diverse fields such as law, political science, feminist studies, international affairs, and cultural studies. The multidisciplinary inquiry about cutting-edge human rights issues adds depth to the marvelously lucid analysis provided in Minow's essays. From a broad range of perspectives, the various authors actually enact some of Minow's powerful points in the very process of their exploration of previously undeveloped linkages."--Aviam Soifer, Boston College Law School

"This book is an excellent contribution to a newly emerging and potentially very valuable way of thinking about hatred and violence."--Susan Okin, Department of Political Science, Stanford University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Kindle Edition
Much is said about breaking the crime cycle in this should be a wake up call to dysfunctional families, juvenile delinquents and criminals, period. Throughout the inmate chronicles of "From Bondage to Freedom" by Carolyn Engledow and Mitchell Hendrix, we read about what gives birth to a life of crime. Many former inmates have written books about there abusive encounters in the prison system but few of those books encourage young people to avoid criminal lifestyles. Few of those books are unlike "From Bondage to Freedom" which details the stages of criminality, the behavioral patterns of criminals, and compels young people to break their crime cycles to avoid the consequences of criminality and prison rape.
