About the Author

C. Fred Alford is Professor of Government and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher at the University of Maryland, College Park. A recipient of three awards from the Fulbright Commission, he is the author of more than a dozen books in moral psychology, most recently, Psychology and the Natural Law of Reparation.


'Alford shows how carefully attending to our post-Holocaust predicament enables us to appreciate and share our humanity in ways that resist perverse forces intent on degrading and destroying human existence. Recognizing our finitude and fallibility while holding humankind accountable, Alford's flashes of insight are scarcely comforting, but they provide much-needed guidance that can bring us to our senses.' John K. Roth, Claremont McKenna College
'A work of literary sensitivity and erudition, After the Holocaust deepens our understanding not only of Holocaust survivors but of all who have been confronted by the unthinkable.' Raymond Scheindlin, Jewish Theological Seminary and translator of a new edition of the Book of Job
