REVIEWS

"This is an extraordinary book. I cannot judge the biological aspects of the tyrannical few who rule political and economic elites in the modern era, but intuitively I am convinced that it is a pathological condition. The analysis and prognosis offered in this book rang true and valid again and again when I thought about my own work, both with regards to [the Nakba of] 1948 and … the history of the Israeli occupation."

Ilan Pappe, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

"I was most impressed with the combination of depth and breadth in this treatment of evil; depth in the search for and elucidation of the sources or origins of different kinds of evil and of the systems that generate and perpetuate evil, and breadth in the rich reach of ideas across many domains of knowledge. Together they combine to make fascinating, essential reading."
Philip Zimbardo, author of The Lucifer Effect

"[Political Ponerology] impressed me in lots of ways and provoked me to think more about the nature and origin of what we call 'evil'. The strongest part of the book is the analysis of how psychopaths gain power and of the behaviour of such societies. … It is undoubtedly true that psychopaths exist and are dangerous and manipulative. … I believe, perhaps optimistically, that a powerful social ethos (which is these days somewhat less than it used to be) works in reducing the capacity for individuals to behave selfishly - a similar kind of mechanism that persuades people to accept and follow psychopaths. That is part of the solution too. … In all, a book I was pleased to have read and which I hope will continue to promote the study of how a certain kind of evil spreads. And especially in continuing to name as 'evil' things that many people are unable to see as such.”"
Philip R. Davies, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at Sheffield University
