And Our Critics Commend

October 26, 1986

The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide, Robert Jay Lifton (Basic). "A full, sometimes unbearable account of the horrors that went on. . . . Some of the most painful parts of the book are the voices of these old doctors talking about reasons" (Richard Eder).

A Machine That Would Go of Itself, Michael Kammen (Knopf). "Kammen convincingly shows that the Constitution has become a powerful symbol of national unity just because each group has been able to see it as a mirror of its own goals" (John Denvir).

The Capitalist Revolution: Fifty Propositions About Prosperity, Equality and Liberty, Peter L. Berger (Basic). This "artful, interesting analysis of the culture of capitalism . . . will become, I believe, a manifesto for people who uphold the superiority of capitalism over socialism." Peter Berger "writes cogently and with a dry sense of humor" (Milton Moskowitz).
