Summary

This unique volume critically discusses the works of fifty of the most influential scholars involved in the study of the Holocaust and genocide. Studying each scholar’s background and influences, the authors examine the ways in which their major works have been received by critics and supporters, and analyse each thinker’s contributions to the field. Key figures discussed range from historians and philosophers, to theologians, anthropologists, art historians and sociologists, including:

  • Hannah Arendt
  • Christopher Browning
  • Primo Levi
  • Raphael Lemkin
  • Jacques Sémelin
  • Saul Friedländer
  • Samantha Power
  • Hans Mommsen
  • Emil Fackenheim
  • Helen Fein
  • Adam Jones
  • Ben Kiernan.

A thoughtful collection of groundbreaking thinkers, this book is an ideal resource for academics, students, and all those interested in both the emerging and rapidly evolving field of Genocide Studies and the established field of Holocaust Studies.
