Blocking out, turning a blind eye, shutting off, not wanting to know, wearing blinkers, seeing what we want to see . . . these are all expressions of ‘denial'. Alcoholics who refuse to recognize their condition, people who brush aside suspicions of their partner’s infidelity, the wife who doesn't notice that her husband is abusing their daughter - all are supposedly ‘in denial’. Governments deny their responsibility for atrocities, and plan them to achieve ‘maximum deniability’, while bystander nations deny their responsibility to intervene. New climate change research spawns theories of scientific inaccuracy and outright exaggeration from growing camps of climate change deniers. In this revised edition of his highly acclaimed States of Denial, Stanley Cohen revisits his cogent intervention on these issues. Do these phenomena have anything in common? When we deny, are we aware of what we are doing or is this an unconscious defence mechanism to protect us from unwelcome truths? Can there be cultures of denial? How do organizations like Amnesty and Oxfam try to overcome the public’s apparent indifference to distant suffering and cruelty? Is denial always so bad - or do we need positive illusions to retain our sanity? Hailed by critics as one of the most important contributions ever made to our understanding of atrocities and suffering, States of Denial is a comprehensive study of both the personal and political ways in which uncomfortable realities are avoided and evaded. Ranging from clinical studies of depression, to media images of suffering, to explanations of the ‘passive bystander’ and ‘compassion fatigue', the book shows how organized atrocities - the Holocaust and other genocides, torture, and political massacres - are denied by perpetrators and by bystanders, those who stand by and do nothing.
