"In reading this book I was captivated not only by the thoughtfulness of Sam Oliner's reasoning but also by the realization that it was written by one who personally suffered the ravages of the Holocaust. Orphaned, hunted, and terrorized for three years as a Jewish adolescent in Poland, Oliner demonstrates the remarkable ability to emerge from the darkness to shed light on the world of healing and to strive to improve the human condition for all." Robert Krell, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada, and Holocaust Survivor This book focuses on intergroup apology and its outcome. Over one hundred apologies have been made recently by leaders or groups to those they have harmed. Altruism, Intergroup Apology, Forgiveness, and Reconciliation offers examples such as truth and reconciliation commissions and also the recent example of Polish-Ukrainian leaders offering mutual apologies for a massacre that both groups inflicted on one another. Using cases that show a positive outcome, this hopeful book provides empirical evidence that there is a positive relationship between altruism, apology, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

With the assistance of Piotr Olaf Zylicz, Oliner has produced the finest book on this topic I have ever read!

Their approach blends philosophy with pragmatism: The book addresses deep, abstract questions (. Does collective guilt exist? ), but also looks at the concrete steps countries like Germany, Japan, and China have taken to address the bitter fallout from political violence.

Intergroup wrongdoings recurrently emerge across the world as unsolved critical problems of the past. By now social sciences have only marginally dealt with collective guilt or responsibility. This paper first draws on theoretical notions of the issue.

Talk about Altruism, Intergroup Apology, Forgiveness, and Reconciliation


Anasius
This book presents Sam Oliner's most mature view to date of what he calls "the altruistic inclination," which is his life work project both personally and as a sociologist. His published work began with his personal story of survival and rescue after his family was killed by the Nazis in 1943 in Poland. His previous research books on the altruism behind the actions of Holocaust rescuers and others (such as The Altruistic Personality, authored with Pearl Oliner, and Do Unto Others: Extraordinary Acts of Ordinary People--How Altruism Inspires True Acts of Courage) have highlighted the personality and developmental ingredients to the altruistic inclination. These include empathy, reciprocity, personal morality and moral goals, learned caring norms, courage, self-esteem, and religious faith and spirituality.

The new ingredients to altruism that Sam Oliner adds in this book are more social interactional: inter-group apology, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Oliner compellingly shows that there is a growing worldwide movement of inter-group apology, foregiveness, and reconcilliation. Through a rich mixture of research, principles, and case studies, focused on what works and doesn't work Oliner convincingly suggests that "...when apologies are genuine, when remediation is offered, changed behavior follows and harmony can prevail; this makes for a more peaceful world." I recommend this excellent book most hightly.

With the change in administrations and hopefully a new humility in American foreign policy, Dr. Oliner has made an important contribution to the dialogue of what nations and ethnic groups need to do to move forward towards a more peaceful world. Oliner has studied many cases of intergroup apology and acts of forgiveness and has analyzed the results. He has incorporated his own experiences as a Polish Jewish Holocaust survivor to inform more profound insights into Eastern European experiences with apology, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

Although the focus of this book is the big picture of world politics, there are many lessons that can be wisely applied to the personal level.

Dr. Oliner is an important scholar in the area of Altruism and this latest book adds a new dimension to this study, namely intergroup apology, forgiveness, and reconciliation among groups who have experienced historical or contemporary pain and divisiveness. Using various case studies ranging from Polish/Ukraine apology and reconciliation, Australian Government and Aborigines, Canadian Government and their Native peoples, Drs Oliner and Zylicz offer a well rounded approach for examining and encouraging intergroup apology, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Forgiveness between groups is an area of study which deserves more attention in a time of war and extremism. This book is especially recommended for policy makers, political leaders, and anyone who is interested in creating a more caring, and reconciled society.
