′Such is the concentrated brilliance of this study that it is sure to find an appreciative audience in every field of research which touches on the Holocaust.′ Times Literary Supplement
′This is a profound book, brilliant in its insights ... It demands wide readership.′ Political Studies
′The book should be widely read by students of the social sciences, since it is, apart from a provocative analysis of explanations of genocide, a critique of sociology, which Bauman claims has neglected the ethical dilemmas posed by the destruction of the Jews.′ Sociology
The book examines what sociology can teach us about the Holocaust, but more particularly concentrates upon the lessons which the Holocaust has for sociology. Bauman′s work demonstrates that the Holocaust has to be understood as deeply involved with the nature of modernity. There is nothing comparable to this work available in the sociological literature.
A really thought provoking read. I was directed to this on a University access course. The afterword in this edition in particular is worth reading.Published 25 days ago by MPT
