Book Signing -- Anatomy of Malice: The Enigma of the Nazi War Criminals
Sunday, February 5, at 3:00 pm
Join us this Sunday for a discussion and book signing by Dr. Joel Dimsdale, author of Anatomy of Malice: The Enigma of the Nazi War Criminals. Dr. Dimsdale, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Research Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSD, has written a gripping narrative that probes the psychological nature of four Nazi war criminals -- Robert Ley, Hermann Goering, Julius Streicher, and Rudolf Hess. Drawing on his decades of experience as a psychiatrist and the dramatic advances within psychiatry, psychology, and neuroscience since Nuremberg, Dr. Dimsdale looks anew at findings from interviews and tests of the war criminals conducted in 1945. Using increasingly precise diagnostic tools, he discovers a remarkably broad spectrum of pathology. Anatomy of Malice takes us on a complex and troubling quest to make sense of the most extreme evil.
