The initial essay provides an introduction and overview that gives the reader some useful background and perspective about the specific essays. The specific essays discuss the role of denunciation in modern European history: (1) during the French Revolution; (2) in pre-revolutionary Russia; (3) in the Roman Catholic Church; (4) in Nazi Germany; (5) in the Soviet Union; and (6) in the German Democratic Republic. Taken together, the essays provide a thorough, scholarly exploration of the nature of denunciations, their use in a variety of countries and organizations, the direct and indirect effects of denunciations, and problems and dilemmas that denunciation posed to regimes and their citizens.
This is a scholarly, academic work that is not likely to appeal to a casual reader. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in a serious, in-depth discussion and analysis of the nature and role of denunciation and its political and social consequences. Readers interested in this book should also consider taking a look at Xing Lu, Rhetoric of the Chinese Cultural Revolution: The Impact on Chinese Thought, Culture, and Communication (Studies in Rhetoric/Communication).
