The Double Binds of Ethics after the Holocaust advances the idea that the Holocaust undermined confidence in basic beliefs about human rights and shows steps of salvage and retrieval that need to be taken if ethics is to be a significant presence in a world still besieged by genocide and atrocity.

"This is an important book . . .It includes penetrating reviews of the thought systems that failed and important reports on new ethical resources...This book deserves to be read by anyone wrestling with ethics, religious meaning, the nature of humanity, and the need to prevent a recurrence of genocide." - Rabbi Irving Greenberg, founding President, Jewish Life Network and past Chairman, United States Holocaust Memorial Council

"A worthy contribution to contemporary philosophy; itoffers more questions than answers as it probes some of the finestthinkers of our age." - Michael Berenbaum, Director, Sigi Ziering Institute: Exploring the Ethical and Religious Implications of the Holocaust, American Jewish University

"This is a book that needs to be read and re-read by the powers that be -and the rest of us as well. I highly recommend it." - Dr. Carol Rittner, RSM, Distinguished Professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey

"For the authors of this fine collection, to speak of ethics after the Holocaust is to choke on one s words yet to continue speaking. It is a double bind: what you must do but cannot, what you cannot do but must. This is ethics today: without the cozy comforts of a moral higher ground. And this is a book to read today: for all who ask what happened to ethics in our contemporary world." - Peter Ochs, Edgar Bronfman Professor of Modern Judaic Studies, University of Virginia
