"In open and lively responses to the probing questions and provocative comments of Richard D. Heffner - American historian, noted public television moderator/producer, and Rutgers University professor - Elie Wiesel covers fascinating and often perilous political and spiritual ground, expounding on issues global and local, individual and universal, often drawing anecdottaly on his own life experience." "We hear from Wiesel on subjects that include the moral responsibility of both individuals and governments; the role of the state in our lives; the anatomy of hate; the threat of technology; religion, politics, and tolerance; nationalism; capital punishment, compassion, and mercy; and the essential role of historical memory." "These conversations present a valuable and thought-provoking distillation of the thinking of one of the world's most important and respected figures - a man who has become a moral beacon for our time."--Jacket.
