"This book will probably be of most interest to those engaged in human and women's rights struggles and other political issues, as well as other academic philosophers... Speaks to both contemporary and social theories, and at the core, The Atrocity Paradigm is a useful and provocative starting
point for this discussion."--SF Gate
"Ordinarily, I would advise taking the puffery on a book's dust jacket with a grain of salt. But, in this case, I think no exaggeration at all is involved in the claim that the book contains a good deal of wisdom. In sum, this is an excellent book. I recommend it very highly to any philosopher
who is interested in the topic of evil."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
