"This anthology of essays on Steven Spielberg's 1993 film is a solid achievement. It is a repository of considerable critical insight and frequently passionate argument." —Holocaust and Genocide Studies

"An excellent collection; highly recommended for general readers and students at all levels." —Choice

"This collection of essays opens further the debate on how to represent the Holocaust as Holocaust representation and memory move into ever-greater areas of daily American and Jewish American culture." —Tikkun

Schindler’s List not only afforded director Steven Spielberg a cinematic vehicle loaded with Hollywood-hardware to create his master narrative about the Holocaust, the film also invited a renewed scholarly and intellectual discussion about racism, "historical voyeurism" and the "limits of representation." This thought-provoking critical anthology tackles these issues and many others.
