Renowned moral philosopher Jonathan Glover confronts the brutal history of the twentieth century to unravel the mystery of why so many atrocities occurred. In a new preface, Glover brings the book through the post-September 11 era and into our own time and asks whether humankind can "weaken the grip war has on us.""Praise for the first edition: " It is hard to imagine a more important book. Glover makes an overwhelming case for the need to understand our own inhumanity, and reduce or eliminate the ways in which it can express itself and he then begins the task himself. "Humanity "is" "an extraordinary achievement. Peter Singer, Princeton University This is an extraordinary book: brilliant, haunting and uniquely important. Almost 40 years ago a president read a best seller and avoided a holocaust. I like to think that some of the leaders and followers of tomorrow will read "Humanity." " "Steven Pinker, "New York Times Book Review""
