Editorial Reviews


"The book is very much what it promises, a reader designed to introduce the student to thinking about the Holocaust in analytical terms." Australian Jewish News <!--end-->

"The greatest attribute of The Holocaust is quite simply the work itself as a whole. Rather than a comprehensive history of the Holocaust told from the point of view of one scholar, Gigliotti and Lang present primary and secondary works that approach the subject from historical, ethical, philosophical, sociological, and legal viewpoints. As a result, the editors not only appeal to a wide audience, but they also encourage cooperation between many fields of study. Simone Gigliotti and Berel Lang's contribution should become a staple in undergraduate and graduate seminars on the Holocaust and genocide for years to come, so the next generation of scholars will not forget and will begin their own efforts to understand." H-Net Reviews

"Simone Gigliotti and Berel Lang's book constitutes a valuable new contribution to the field."
European History Quarterly

Book Description

Contemporary Debates in Applied Ethics features pairs of newly commissioned essays by some of the leading theorists working in the field today. Philosophers, social theorists, and legal scholars take opposing sides on issues of enduring and special contemporary importance such as abortion, affirmative action, animal rights, capital punishment, cloning, euthanasia, immigration, pornography, privacy in civil society, values in nature, and world hunger. The essays are written in plain, jargon-free language so as to be accessible to introductory readers, but they also contain cutting-edge, rigorous arguments that will demand the attention of scholars working on the hottest topics in applied ethics.
