Guilt about the past by Bernhard Schlink ( Book )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Author Bernhard Schlink explores the long shadow of past guilt as both an individual experience and a collective and global one. By using the example of the postwar German experience, Schlink addresses both timely and universal themes: how past events can affect a nation's future; how the lessons of history can be used to motivate individual moral behaviour and the role of the law in this process; and how the theme of guilt influences his own fiction. Based on the Weidenfeld Lectures he delivered at Oxford University, this thought-provoking book illuminates the moral complexity that binds guilt and responsibility, and what makes for a true state of reconciliation." --Book Jacket
