Guilt about the past by Bernhard Schlink ( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 396 libraries worldwide
"Schlink tackles the burden of German guilt about events during the Second World War - the six essays that make up this compelling book view the long shadow of past guilt that is not just a German experience, but also a global one. Bernhard Schlink explores the phenomenon of collective guilt and how it attaches to a whole society, not just to individual perpetrators. He considers: how to use the lesson of history to motivate individual moral behaviour; how to reconcile a guilt-laden past; the role of law in this process; and how the theme of guilt influences his own fiction. Based on the Weidenfeld lectures he delivered at Oxford University in 2008, Guilt is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand how events of the past can affect a nations future."--Provided by publisher.
