"Infrequently does one read a book that clearly stands as a major contribution to its field. Even less frequently does such a book manage to speak lucidly and intelligibly to two worlds--academia and the general public. In presenting a new theory--of identity and perspective--to help understand the actions of rescuers during the Holocaust, Professor Monroe offers us not only a compelling explanation but one that is at the same time as emotionally moving as it is intellectually persuasive. This is an extraordinary achievement."--David Easton, author of "A Systems Analysis of Political Life""Monroe's very well written argument is advanced and justified by the five individual first-person narratives, gripping in their microdetail, at the heart of this book. I couldn't put the book down."--Susanne Hoeber Rudolph, University of Chicago, author of "Reversing the Gaze""Monroe's accounts of the rescuers are gripping and valuable. She is a sensitive interviewer who gets the most out of her subjects, and her analysis yields some unique conclusions about the theory of morality."--Robert E. Lane, Yale University, author of "The Loss of Happiness in Market Democracies"Monroe, Kristen Renwick is the author of 'Hand of Compassion Portraits of Moral Choice During the Holocaust', published 2006 under ISBN 9780691127736 and ISBN 0691127735.
