About the Authors
  • Do people ever feel guilty about the harmful actions their group has committed against another group, even if they personally were not responsible for, or played no role in, the harm done? The research in this volume reveals these experiences of collective guilt as well as provides answers to "when" and "why." Moreover, the consequences of collective guilt for reconciliation between groups in conflict are examined in diverse nations. How collective guilt may be garnered for peaceful purposes and the resolution of social conflict is critically considered in this timely book.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A decade or more ago, as researchers first recognized the key role of emotions in the ways groups deal with eaach other, the focus was naturally on emotions most obviously related to intergroup conflict, such as anger or fear. Now the conceptual focus has broadened to include a wider range of group-based emotions. Collective guilt is particularly interesting, because it can lead to prosocial behaviors (such as apologies or restitution to injured groups), but also can motivate people to turn a blind eye to their own groups's past misdeeds. This volume preseents research taking a variety of perspectives on collective guilt, addressing important issues in multiple national and historical contexts." Elliot R. Smith, Indiana University
