What compels a young man to use gratuitous violence? Is there any way of understanding intolerance and extremism? When is revenge an acceptable motive? Can you hold people responsible for their own intellectual limitations? In her new book, Janne Teller again asks difficult and uncomfortable questions, confronting us with scenarios way beyond our comfort zone. Trenchant and intense, with concise, laconic prose and powerful use of metaphor, she forces the reader to take a stand, challenging us to reflect and discuss complex and controversial issues. Ten stories that get right under the skin – stories about assimilation and exclusion, prejudice and intolerance, murder and the death penalty, identity and learning disabilities, violence and revenge, integration and cultural diversity.
