  • Description or summary of the book: Renowned moral philosopher Jonathan Glover confronts the brutal history of the twentieth century to unravel the mystery of why so many atrocities occurred. In a new preface, Glover brings the book through the post-September 11 era and into our own time-and asks whether humankind can 'weaken the grip war has on us.'Praise for the first edition:'It is hard to imagine a more important book. Glover makes an overwhelming case for the need to understand our own inhumanity, and reduce or eliminate the ways in which it can express itself-and he then begins the task himself. Humanity is an extraordinary achievement.'-Peter Singer, Princeton University 'This is an extraordinary book: brilliant, haunting and uniquely important. Almost 40 years ago a president read a best seller and avoided a holocaust. I like to think that some of the leaders and followers of tomorrow will read Humanity.'-Steven Pinker, New York Times Book Review
