Summary
"These essays by Dan Diner reflect the author's belief that the Holocaust transcends traditional patterns of historical understanding and requires an epistemologically distinct approach." "Diner focuses above all on perspectives: the very notions of rationality and irrationality are seen to be changeable, depending on who is applying them. And because neither rational nor irrational motives can be universally assigned to participants in the Holocaust, Diner proposes, from the perspective of the victims, the idea of the counterrational. His work is directed toward developing a theory of Holocaust historiography and offers, clearly and coherently, the highest level of reflection on these problems."--Jacket
