520    "Anger is not just ubiquitous, it is also popular. Many 
       people think it is impossible to care sufficiently for 
       justice without anger at injustice. Many believe that it 
       is impossible for individuals to vindicate their own self-
       respect or to move beyond an injury without anger. To not 
       feel anger in those cases would be considered suspect. Is 
       this how we should think about anger, or is anger above 
       all a disease, deforming both the personal and the 
       political? In this wide-ranging book, Martha C. Nussbaum, 
       one of our leading public intellectuals, argues that anger
       is conceptually confused and normatively pernicious. It 
       assumes that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the 
       thing that was damaged, and it betrays an all-too-lively 
       interest in relative status and humiliation. Studying 
       anger in intimate relationships, casual daily interactions,
       the workplace, the criminal justice system, and movements 
       for social transformation, Nussbaum shows that anger's 
       core ideas are both infantile and harmful. Is forgiveness 
       the best way of transcending anger? Nussbaum examines 
       different conceptions of this much-sentimentalized notion,
       both in the Jewish and Christian traditions and in secular
       morality. Some forms of forgiveness are ethically 
       promising, she claims, but others are subtle allies of 
       retribution: those that exact a performance of contrition 
       and abasement as a condition of waiving angry feelings. In
       general, she argues, a spirit of generosity (combined, in 
       some cases, with a reliance on impartial welfare-oriented 
       legal institutions) is the best way to respond to injury. 
       Applied to the personal and the political realms, 
       Nussbaum's profoundly insightful and erudite view of anger
       and forgiveness puts both in a startling new light."--
