Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century

Source: Greater Good Science Center

This important book confronts the brutal history of the twentieth century to unravel the psychological mystery of why so many atrocities occurred–the Holocaust, Hiroshima, the Gulag, Cambodia, Yugoslavia, Rwanda, and others–and how we can prevent their recurrence. Jonathan Glover finds disturbing similarities in the psychology of those involved with atrocities, yet offers hope that the development of a political and personal moral imagination can empower us to resist all acts of cruelty.
