Since the 1990s scholars have focused heavily on the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and have presented a complex and diverse picture of perpetrators. This book provides a unique overview of the current state of research on perpetrators. The overall focus is on the key question that it still disputed: How do ordinary people become mass murderers?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ordinary People as Mass Murderers is an extraordinarily felicitous book which ought to be regarded as an important enrichment to the academic and even to the political discussion. It offers complex, detailed and sophisticated analyses in every single one of its difficult subjects, and at the same time it is inspiring and well readable. The editors doubtlessly succeeded in offering a supremely objective and factual contribution on this urgent, extremely challenging and delicate theme.' - Wolfgang Benz, Center for Research on Anti-Semitism, Technical University of Berlin, Germany Taterforschung (perpetrator research) is dominated by German scholars, and much of the sophisticated, detailed and empirically rich work has yet to find its way into English. This short collection of essays is thus very welcome as a contribution to the English-language scholarship on perpetrators...the book ranges widely, and the quality of the chapters is uniformly high, combining readabilty and up-to-date research. The book will be ideal for teaching at higher undergraduate or postgraduate levels...' - Dan Stone, Journal of Genocide Research
