Prosecuting Nazi War Criminals


"It has been nearly fifty years since the collapse of the Nazi regime; is there any longer a point to pressing for the apprehension and prosecution of surviving Nazi war criminals?" "In this carefully argued book, Alan Rosenbaum makes it clear that there is. He contends that apart from the concerns about obligations to the dead or vengeance against the living, we must continue to pursue the prosecutorial agenda as an investment in the moral climate in which we wish to live. To fail to do so would be to fail in our commitment to a society safe for ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity. Demonstrating that the crucial arguments apply well beyond the specific concern about war criminals, Rosenbaum looks at other current issues, including the treatment of hate groups and hate speech and the reconstruction of a Christian theology without anti-semitism. This book is an important contribution to Jewish and Holocaust studies; to political, social, and legal thought; and to moral theory." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
