Product Details

Praise

Fruits of Sorrow is a rare book. It recasts an important human concern in illuminating, memorable, and constructive terms. Spelman reframes enduring debates over human suffering by asking whose suffering gets attention, by whom, and for what purposes. . . . With elegance, honesty, and integrity, Spelman reveals the eerie proximities of compassion and domination, empathy and appropriation. Fruits of Sorrow is a crucial guide for any accidental traveler in the domain of thinking, feeling, and caring. —Martha Minow, professor of law, Harvard Law School

“Spelman has written a genuine and perceptive book.” —Publishers Weekly

Fruits of Sorrow points the way toward forms of moral engagement that combine intensity of commitment with complexity, openness, vulnerability and deeper levels of understanding.” —Paul Rosenberg, Fall Book Quarterly
