The present book brings essays that deal with suicide and
genocide from several aspects and points of view:
historical, sociological, science of religion, psychological
and therapeutic, educational, legal, philosophical and
theological. Some of them combine several approaches and
thus the book as a whole offers an integral
inter-disciplinary insight into the nature, origins,
function and connections of both phenomena. It also outlines
the ways and models for their prevention and overcoming of
their effects and consequences. It can be useful as for
students as well for the experts in the fields of humanities
and social science. The book is marked by the Central
European origin of the authors which partly resulted in its
special topics and stresses.
