The Exception

Book/daddy Jerome Weeks posted a review of The Exception, a book about genocide:

A philosophical thriller, The Exception considers the question who among us could commit atrocities, and sets it not among soldiers or sadists but the staff in a Copenhagen think tank devoted to studying genocide. In other words, take the most humanitarian, high-minded Westerners around — people like us, you know, the best people — and given the right circumstances, circumstances that needn’t even be that extreme, we will still savage each other.

His review—and probably the novel as a whole—complements The Lucifer Effect and my recent post.
