Abstract

This introductory article begins with a brief discussion of the development of Holocaust studies. It then describes how the present book differs from related books in at least three respects. First, it primarily features articles by the second and third generations of Holocaust scholars, rather than direct contributions by the pioneers in the field. Second, the book bridges a perhaps widening gap between various disciplinary approaches to the study of the Holocaust. Third, a substantial portion of the book is devoted to the Holocaust's aftermath, engaging issues that the historically-oriented titles mention but do not emphasize.
