Of Mind and Murder

Toward a More Comprehensive Psychology of the Holocaust

George R. Mastroianni

  • Addresses methodological challenges for psychologists in studying the Holocaust, and explicitly discusses the ways in which scholars from different disciplines, such as psychology and history, can collaborate to improve our understanding of the Holocaust
  • Presents the whole history of psychological thinking about the Holocaust, and seriously discusses approaches that have largely been ignored since the Milgram studies came to dominate the psychology of the Holocaust, such as those of Kelley, Gilbert, Allport, and Staub, among others.
  • Engages the Holocaust as an event that must be confronted and understood in historical context
