While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the SS. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to--and obtain absolution from--a Jew. Faced with the choice between compassion and justice, silence and truth, Wiesenthal said nothing. But even years after the way had ended, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in his place? In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women respond to Wiesenthal's questions. They are theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China and Tibet. Their responses, as varied as their experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal's questions are not limited to events of the past. Often surprising and always thought provoking, The Sunflower will challenge you to define your beliefs about justice, compassion, and human responsibility. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Frankl's timeless memoir and meditation on finding meaning in the midst of suffering With a new Foreword by Harold S. Kushner and a new Biographical Afterword by William J. WinsladePsychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America. Beacon Press, the original English-language publisher of Man's Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback edition with a new Foreword, biographical Afterword, jacket, price, and classroom materials to reach new generations of readers. Born in Vienna in 1905 Viktor E. Frankl earned an M.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He published more than thirty books on theoretical and clinical psychology and served as a visiting professor and lecturer at Harvard, Stanford, and elsewhere. In 1977 a fellow survivor, Joseph Fabry, founded the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy. Frankl died in 1997.

From visionary social entrepreneur and lifestyle architect Chris Guillebeau, author of the New York Times bestseller The $100 Startup, comes a book about finding purpose in work and life by committing to a life-changing project or quest. Chris Guillebeau specializes in helping people break out of the box of their everyday lives, sharing ideas on how to create income on one's own terms and not necessarily abide by a 9-to-5 corporation life. Now he goes a step further to help you find genuine life fulfilment by undertaking a quest or challenge that is big and ambitious, that involves surpassing the limits most people accept as part of their routine-filled lives and making an actual difference. Chris has undertaken a successful quest of his own, having visited nearly every country in the world by age 35, but your own quest needn't involve travel at all. What's needed is commitment and progressive accomplishment, losing oneself in a task - whether it be a physical journey, an artistic enterprise, a philanthropic feat, even an act of political protest. Chris has surveyed thousands who've undertaken such quests and identified: · How they went about it · The common mistakes · What happened when they hit the wall · How they coped when the quest was over The Happiness of Pursuit offers well-researched, easy-to-follow advice that helps readers bridge the gap between 'impossible dream' and 'everyday reality'. Your own quest can give you the self knowledge to find and live a more fulfilling life.
