How can former enemies learn to live together in peaceful political association? What enables them to put aside traditional hatreds and forgo revenge despite grievous harms suffered at each other's hands? Shriver aims to rescue the concept of forgiveness from the solely personal and religious realms to which it has long been delegated, and to demonstrate its relevance, indeed its indispensability, to political life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sometimes a book appears at precisely the right time. Shriver's An Ethic for Enemies: Forgiveness in Politics should be required reading for political leaders, educators, clergy, the media and so-called ordinary citizens ... Shriver brilliantly describes whu and how human conflicts can be successfully resolved ... Shriver's hard-headed realism about radical evil prevents him from offering naive sermons that simply condemn the enmity that exists among individuals, groups and nations. Shriver lives in the real world along with the rest of us. * Religion News Service *
a much needed and well-argued concept of forgiveness as an essential ingredient in political reconciliation...this is a deeply disturbing book because it faces us with ultimate human dilemmas. * Third Way Vol 18 no 4 *
There is plenty of grist for the moral mill here. Will it, can it, yield an ethic for enemies? * Asian Age 4/95 *
Coherent and disciplined theological enquiries...rich in reference. * Journal of Theological Studies *
