From Library Journal
The flames of violence engulfing the world have prompted social scientists to look for fresh solutions, one of which is forgiveness. Although theologians and philosophers have written much on the subject, social scientists subjected it to "benign neglect" until 1985, when some empirical research began. This is a collection of papers from a symposium convened to define the field and lay the foundation for future research. It is a strong first volume in a series intended to explore how "positive mind-set and virtues enhance the lives of individuals and, ultimately, the well-being of society." The first two papers define forgiveness in terms of Christianity and Judaism; the final paper redefines it from a secular standpoint. In addition to studies on forgiveness as a basic social process, two papers consider future research. A large, admirably annotated bibliography on forgiveness and related subjects is included. The authors are major contributors in the field, and they have succeeded admirably in their mandate.?Eugene O. Bowser, Univ. of Northern Colorado, Greeley
