The collected essays of Dr. Jack Nusan Porter reveal a life-long commitment to serious in-depth analysis of the Holocaust and are distinguished by a fertile and probing intellect. The breadth of his scholarly research is uncommon at a time of intense specialization, but Dr. Porter brings to bear in his approach both a broad overview and incisive study of material, some of which makes a singular contribution to the socio-historical material he has been exploring. -- Gershon M. Weisenberg, Independent Scholar
The investigation of these topics (genocide and Holocaust) has largely been the work of historians...What is striking is how few sociologists have attempted to investigate these important topics and to apply the specific tools of their profession to these problems...It is the great virtue of this collection that it is written by a leading sociologist and attempts to use sociological techniques to explicate a number of key problems...There is a great deal to be learned from these essays and I very much hope they reach the wide audience they deserve. -- Antony Polonsky, Professor, Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Brandeis University
Porter provides numerous examples of important research. * Canadian Research Knowledge Network, January 2009 *
Jack Nusan Porter's The Genocidal Mind is a breath of fresh air brought to the plethora of Holocaust-related survey texts [in] the field of genocide studies...Well thought-out and more than solidly grounded in Holocaust sources...Porter then takes primary Holocaust inquiry to new spaces that heretofore have remained under-researched and represent the field's final frontier: the politics of sexual orientation genocide and the sexology of genocidaires. -- Andy Turpin * The Armenian Weekly, Volume 74, Issue 18 *
Porter continues his remarkable original works on "The Genocidal Mind" in his new book...Over the past decades, he has opened doors into sociologically motivated studies of the unique phenomenon of the Jewish Holocaust in Europe. His refusal to follow more straightforward, quantifiable research, and instead look deeply and memorably into human motivations...have enriched our perspectives... -- Dr. Mark Bernheim, Miami University of Ohio
