Description : Social psychologist James Waller uncovers the internal and external factors that can lead ordinary people to commit extraordinary acts of evil. Waller offers a sophisticated and comprehensive psychological view of how anyone can potentially participate in heinous crimes against humanity. He outlines the evolutionary forces that shape human nature, the individual dispositions that are more likely to engage in acts of evil, and the context of cruelty in which these extraordinary acts can emerge. Eyewitness accounts are presented at the end of each chapter. In this second edition, Waller has revised and updated eyewitness accounts and substantially reworked Part II of the book, removing the chapter about human nature and evolutionary adaptations, and instead using this evolutionary perspective as a base for his entire model of human evil.

Description : I was born in1930 in a town called Trencin, in what was then Czechoslovakia -- a country that no longer exists. It is now called the Slovak Republic. I was the only child of well-to-do Jewish couple. My father was the owner of a retail store, a kind of department store, situated in a prime location of the town's principal square. We lived in a large, comfortable apartment above the store. I grew up bi-lingual -- fluent in German, in addition to Slovak. I attended the local Jewish elementary school where, since the age of six, I also studied Hebrew. Further, from the age of eight I received private lessons in English. This peaceful existence was shattered in 1939 when Hitler's Germany annexed the Czech part of the country, with Slovakia becoming a quasi-independent country governed by a native fascist party, firmly allied to Nazi Germany. A basic tenet of this government was its virulent anti-Semitism. A series of anti Jewish laws was soon promulgated, ultimately stripping us of our property and all civil rights. In 1942 theSlovak government started deporting the Jewish population to German concentration camps. Between March and November of that year, out of a Jewish population of close to 90,000, some 60,000 were deported -- the vast majority to their annihilation in extermination camps, principally Auschwitz. In my book you can read how my family escaped deportation in 1942; and how we were finally caught in the net and deported in October, 1944. I describe this desperate period in my book: how I was separated from my family and how I survived a succession of six German concentration camps. In 2006 I published my memoir entitled "1000:1 ODDS." My current memoir is an expanded version of my earlier book, now published under the new title, "MEMORIES OF EVIL." I immigrated to the U.S in November, 1946. I mark this event as my rebirth and the beginning of my new, current life. After a fruitful and satisfying 68 years in the U.S., the travail of my childhood years -- of what I call my previous life -- ought to be long forgotten. And yet survivors of the Holocaust cannot forget, cannot forgive. Vestiges of our trauma will remain with us to our last breath. If you wish to come a little closer to understanding the Holocaust, read my modest book. It is far from the whole truth, for that is beyond human understanding. But it is nothing but the truth, based on fragments of my memory, supplemented by careful historical research.

Description : In this book Chris Jenks looks at what the ways in which we construct our image of childhood can tell us about ourselves. After a general discussion of the social construction of childhood, the book is structured around three examples of the way the image of the child is played out in society: the history of childhood from medieval times through the enlightenment 'discovery' of childhood to the present the mythology and reality of child abuse and society's response to it the 'death' of childhood in cases such as the James Bulger murder in which the child itself becomes the perpetrator of evil. Part of the highly successful Key Ideas series, this book gives students a concise, provocative insight into some of the controlling concepts of our culture.

Description : This book examines what makes someone an evil person and how evil people are different from merely bad people. Rather than focusing on the "problem of evil" that occupies philosophers of religion, Barry looks instead to moral psychology—the intersection of ethics and psychology. He provides both a philosophical account of what evil people are like and considers the implications of that account for social, legal, and criminal institutions. He also engages in traditional philosophical reasoning strongly informed by psychological research, especially abnormal and social psychology. In response to the popularity of phrases like "the axis of evil" and the ease with which politicians and others describe their opponents as "evil," Barry sets out to make clear just what it is to be an evil person.
