Genocide After Emotion: The Postemotional Balkan War

Front Cover
Stjepan Gabriel Meštrović
Psychology Press, 1996 - Social Science - 225 pages
The failure to adequately respond on the part of the major Western superpowers to the atrocities in the Balkans constitutes a major moral and political scandal. In Genocide after Emotion Mestrovic and the contributors thoroughly interrogate the war, its media coverage and response in the West. The result is alarming, both for the progress of the war and for the condition of our society today: the authors argue that the West is suffering from a "postemotional" condition - we are beyond caring about anything anymore.
