Again, a book targeted on academic audiences, and a book of articles compiled together. What I liked in this one was that it grew from concrete into philosophical, and from a case-study into geneal/global over the pages. Also, or probably because of this, the authors managed to put the whole of Nuremberg into context, and extrapolate from there to the modern times.
