This volume is an excellent collection of essays. It offers the right mix of perspectives, topics, and settings that will help any reader of theGeneology, students and scholars alike, in navigating one of Nietzsche's most important and challenging texts. Highly recommended. -- Lawrence J. Hatab, Louis I. Jaffe Professor of Philosophy, Old Dominion University This is an exceptionally strong collection, gathering together some of the most insightful commentary on Nietzsche's most important book, of leading scholars in North America, Europe and beyond over the last twenty years. This substantial new volume is a very welcome contribution to the literature and ought to occupy a prominent place on any list of recommended reading for students of Nietzsche's text. -- Duncan Large, University of Wales at Swansea Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morals looms larger in the Nietzsche canon with each passing year. Something about this work speaks to the ethical predicament of modernity in a way that seems to be full of promise and is yet deeply unsettling and enigmatic; hence the continuing, and increasing discussion of this work by philosophers. Christa Acampora's collection brings together an impressive group of writers who have been at the forefront of contemporary debates on the Genealogy, and will for the near future be the standard work of reference on the topic. -- Henry Staten, professor of English, University of Washington
