This is an intelligent and thought-provoking analysis of the nature of good and evil, and moral and immoral behaviour. Drawing on the latest research into sociology and psychology, deeply personal histories, and the author's own experience as a holocaust survivor, "The Nature of Good & Evil" offers readers an innovative and profound analysis of the nature of good and evil. Focusing on three major events - the Nazi Holocaust, and the Armenian and Rwandan Genocides - Oliner not only sheds new light on the perpetrators of evil and the bystanders whose passivity is complicit in their wrongdoing, but also highlights those whose resistance and heroic opposition to evil should serve as moral example to the world.
