Description
The perplexing story of Cain and Abel is emblematic of a tenacious, sometimes tragic biblical influence over Western secular notions of identity -- notions that are all too often violently exclusionary, negatively defining "us" against "them" in ethnic, religious, racial, gender, and nationalistic terms. Schwartz contends that it is the very concept of monotheism and its many paradigms of One-ness that infuse the model of collective identity founded in violence, against the other or outsider. Recovering the Bible's often misguided role as a handbook for politics and social thought, Schwartz demonstrates just how dangerous it can be.
