The unique human awareness of our own mortality enables us to ensure our perpetuation beyond death through our impact on others. This continuity of life has been profoundly shaken by the advent of wars of mass destruction, genocide, and the ever-present threat of nuclear annihilation. In The Broken Connection, Robert Jay Lifton, one of America's foremost thinkers and preeminent psychiatrists, explores the inescapable connections between death and life, the psychiatric disorders that arise from these connections, and the advent of the nuclear age which has jeopardized any attempts to ensure the perpetuation of the self beyond death.About the Author:
Robert Jay Lifton is Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, The Graduate School, and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine of the City University of New York. He is the author of The Nazi Doctors, Death in Life, and The Life of the Self.
