How should we respond to the inhumanity that suffused the 20th
Century and continues in the present one? Has there been an
adequate treatment of this issue by the political left? Questions
such as these are treated in this, the first scholarly book to
combine academic and blogging approaches to some of the major
political issues of the day. It does this by focusing on the work
of Norman Geras - Marxist, political philosopher and blogger - and
developing the central themes of his work such as crimes against
humanity, the Holocaust, Marxism, and the means/ends problem in
politics. It contains contributions by famous political
philosophers such as Michael Walzer, Hillel Steiner and David
McLennan, and bloggers and journalists such as David Aaronovitch,
Nick Cohen and Ophelia Benson. The book contains a unique response
by Geras in which he draws together the various themes it covers.
It will be of interest to all who are concerned with these pressing
political issues of our times. The book will be particularly
relevant for those with an academic or general interest in
politics, philosophy, sociology, genocide studies, applied ethics,
international relations, and law. It will also be of interest to
bloggers and all those who regard the new technology as having
significant implications for public debate on these issues.
