Summary
  • "As an increasingly polarized America fights over the legacy of racism, Susan Neiman, author of the contemporary philosophical classic Evil in Modern Thought, asks what we can learn from the Germans about confronting the evils of the past."--Provided by publisher
  • In the wake of white nationalist attacks, the ongoing debate over reparations, and the controversy surrounding Confederate monuments and the contested memories they evoke, Neiman delivers an urgently needed perspective on how a country can come to terms with its historical wrongdoings. Through discussions with Germans she tells the story of the long and difficult path Germans faced in their effort to atone for the crimes of the Holocaust. In the United States, she interviews social justice activists to provide a compelling picture of the work contemporary Americans are doing to confront our violent history. -- adapted from jacket
