Editorial Reviews


"[This book] charts the battles of rival sufferings and claims to suffering: a politics of suffering, curiously waged in an age when moral standards wane, and moral arguments do not get far beyond public rhetoric. . . . [Amato's] analysis is profoundly original, not only in joining history and religion, but in assuming . . . that religion has things to say to late twentieth-century folk. . . . The book . . . [is] an admirable essay."- Eugen Weber from the Foreword

Book Description

This book conducts a timely inquiry into contemporary conscience and politics. It examines fundamental ambiguities, dichotomies, and contradictions that we experience about the worth of our own suffering and the suffering of others. In particular, it analyzes how victims make a powerful claim upon contemporary conscience and public debate.
