Danieli, Y.,

In this extraordinary new text, an international array of scholars explore the enduring legacy of such social shocks as war, genocide, slavery, tyranny, crime, and disease. Among the cases addressed are – instances of genocide in Turkey, Cambodia, and Russia – the plight of the families of Holocaust survivors, atomic bomb survivors in Japan, and even the children of Nazis – the long-term effects associated with the Vietnam War and the war in Yugoslavia – and the psychology arising from the legacy of slavery in America.
