The Rev. John C. Bennett was, a theologian whose views on religion, politics and social policy influenced American thinking for decades. Seven leading scholars (including Erich Fromm, Roger Shinn & John C. Bennett) discuss different aspects of the nuclear build up and nuclear war. Erich Seligmann Fromm (March 23, 1900 - March 18, 1980) was a German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist. He was associated with the Frankfurt School of critical theory. He was a co-founder of SANE. Fromm's strongest political activism was in the international peace movement, fighting against the nuclear arms race. Derived from a Kirkus review: Dr. Bennett, Dean of Union Theological Seminary in New York, has brought together six authorities, added his own contribution to the subject, and given the inquiring reader a valuable collection of incisive pieces surveying various aspects of the nuclear arms struggle. David Inglis presents in The Nature of Nuclear War, a graphic picture of what a nuclear attack would bring in terms of death and destruction and extended genetic disaster. Kenneth Thompson weighs the ethical aspects, warning that alleviation could well be impossible if we assume that disaster could never strike. John Bennett's views on Moral are somewhat at odds with Paul Ramsay in The Case for Making thus challenging the reader's opinion. Erich Fromm explores the position with considerable trepidation, while Roger Shinn gives us a hold on a newly refurbished faith in Faith and the Perilous Future The section International Politics and the Nuclear Dilemma by John Herz is challenging. This includes one of the scarcer, and quite insightful, essays by Fromm. First Edition [stated] Verso has printed notice A-1.62[H]. Bookseller Inventory # 73178
