The work starts with the Enlightenments idea of fraternity and its destruction during the fratricide of the French Terror. It includes chapters focusing on the encounters between colonisers and missionaries, the impact of the Holocaust on the search for amity, the prospect for amity in contemporary multiculturalism, and the potential of religion to deepen the experience of amity. The work offers an interdisciplinary analysis of the bases of discord and harmony, of history and memory.
