MEDIA REVIEWS
"Five years after the September 11 attacks resurrected the rhetoric of evil,


the use of the term has become as banal as Hannah Arendt once argued evil


itself is. Despite this ubiquity -- or perhaps because of it -- we seem


increasingly incapable of actually recognizing and confronting evil. This


quandary motivates much of Ruth W. Grant's engaging anthology Naming Evil,


Judging Evil, an effort born of two years of discussions among her Duke


University colleagues. The resulting essays equip readers with the


intellectual tools to understand evil's manifestations, past and present,


and to navigate the tricky terrain of judging those evils -- a prerequisite


to acting against them. While some of the pieces bog down in academic


wrangling, others are excellent and accessible, provoking the kind of deep


and complex thought that is missing from today's public discourse. --Hannah
