Judaism and Genocide: Psychological Undercurrents of History Volume IV returns to the Holocaust and the analysis of anti-Semitism in a time when racial hatred, ethnic cleansing, and apocalyptic fantasy are resurgent. Why do people seek to exterminate other cultures and peoples? How can people inflict violent atrocity without feeling horror or compassion? The authors of this volume address these questions to understand the psychodynamics of hatred, mass violence, and the genocidal impulse, phenomena which thrive even today.
