Fascism and democracy in the human mind : a bridge between mind and society by Israel W Charny( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its conception of mental health and illness, this book develops new directions for diagnosis and treatment of emotional disorders that are played out in everyday acts of violence against ourselves and others. It also offers insight into the sources and workings of terrorism and genocide. What might you have done if you had been caught up in the Holocaust? In My Lai? In Rwanda? Confronted with acts of violence and evil on scales grand and small, we ask ourselves, baffled, how such horrors can happen - how human beings seemingly like ourselves can commit such atrocities. The answer, I.W. Charny suggests in this important new work, may be found in each one of us, in the different and distinct ways in which we organize our minds. An internationally recognized scholar of the psychology of violence, Charny defines two paradigms of mental organization, the democratic and the fascist, and shows how these systems can determine behavior in intimate relationships, social situations, and events of global significance. With its novel conception of mental health and illness, this book develops new directions for diagnosis and treatment of emotional disorders that are played out in everyday acts of violence against ourselves and others. "Fascism and Democracy in the Human Mind" also offers much-needed insight into the sources and workings of terrorism and genocide

Fighting suicide bombing : a worldwide campaign for life by Israel W Charny( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Israel W. Charny first seeks to understand the psychology of suicide bombers, as well as the culture from which they emerge. Taking this understanding of what he calls human evil, he then proposes a hawkish campaign that ultimately emphasizes peace rather than irrational fear." "By deeming suicide bombing and terrorism necessary subjects in the study of psychology, Charny presents yet another weapon in the war against terrorism - a war he believes will only escalate without drastic action. Ultimately, he calls for a "worldwide campaign for life" led by religious and secular leaders across the globe. He concludes the book with a vignette from Islamic culture that speaks nobly to furthering peace and life."--Jacket

The genocide contagion : how we commit and confront holocaust and genocide by Israel W Charny( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Genocide Contagion, Israel W. Charny asks uncomfortable questions about what allows people to participate in genocide-either directly, through killing or other violent acts, or indirectly, by sitting passively while witnessing genocidal acts. Charny draws on both historical and current examples such as the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide, and presses readers around the world to consider how they might contribute to genocide. Given the number of people who die from genocide or suffer indirect consequences such as forced migration, Charny argues that we must all work to resist and to learn about ourselves before critical moments arise

Is the Holocaust unique? : perspectives on comparative genocide by Alan S Rosenbaum( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluating the Jewish Holocaust is by no means a simple matter, and one of the most controversial questions for academics is whether there have been any historical parallels for it. Have Armenians, Gypsies, American Indians, or others undergone a comparable genocide? In this fiercely controversial volume, distinguished scholars offer new discussions of this question. Presenting a wide range of strongly held views, they provide no easy consensus
Genocide and millennialism in Upper Peru : the Great Rebellion of 1780-1782 by Nicholas A Robins( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring one of the least studied genocides in post-conquest South America, Robins calls into question many of the central assumptions currently held by genocide scholars. Victims of genocide usually lack the organization and weaponry to battle their enemies. During the 1780-1782 Great Rebellion in Peru and Upper Peru (now Bolivia), however, the Indian revolutionaries faced the better-organized and armed loyalist army. Whereas genocidal policies are usually characterized by centralized leadership, the Great Rebellion was highly fragmented and confederational in nature, undercutting the widely
