Forgiveness: (breaking the chain of hate ) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From Library Journal
While many books on the market encourage readers to learn to forgive their enemies, this is the first that focuses on the "forgiveness movement" in which the leader of countries or other organizations ask forgiveness from those their countries have injured.

Stories include the development of "National Sorry Day" in Australia regarding abuse of the Aboriginal people, the efforts of Nelson Mandela and others in South Africa to forgive the horrors of the past and focus on building a new country, and the apologies given by the United States to the Japanese interred in camps during World War II, one of whom states here that the apology was much more important than the reparitions.

It is especially instructive to see how people can move past their anger and how forgiveness often serves as the catalyst for major change. A worthwhile addition to conflict resolution, political science, history, and sociology collections.--Danna C. Bell-Russel, Library of Congress Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
