Reviews



“A sensitive, nuanced, and ethically and psychologically insightful work on an extraordinarily important and difficult topic. The diversity of voices and perspectives provide thoughtful commentary on pedagogy that contribute to teaching that is responsible, respectful, critical, and characterized by humility and care for survivors of rape in war and genocide and genuine concern for providing students with challenging but supportive opportunities for learning that inspires and empowers.” (Dr. Noam Schimmel, Visiting Fellow, Kellogg College, Oxford University, UK)

“Teaching About Rape in War and Genocide is a major contribution. Together with an international, interdisciplinary team of scholar-teachers, Rittner and Roth address fundamental questions: why, who, how, and what to teach about this urgent subject. The editors and authors approach their topic with a judicious blend of empathy and rigor, authority and humility.” (Doris L. Bergen, author of War and Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust)

“This is a long-overdue volume. Mapping a wide range of approaches to teaching about rape in war and genocide, it offers insights that are simultaneously accessible, practical, and profound. Anybody planning to teach about sexualized violence should read this book. Perhaps more important, those who have avoided the topic should too.” (James Dawes, author of Evil Men and That the World May Know: Bearing Witness to Atrocity)

“Rittner and Roth convincingly argue not only that we must teach about rape in war and genocide but also hone our teaching like a craft. This book speaks directly to the heart of every teacher and parent. Would that every teacher - of whatever field - will read it and ask the questions of who should teach, and how, and why.” (Roger Brooks, President and Chief Executive Officer of Facing History and Ourselves)
