This introductory chapter discusses the relevance of this compilation to those who are either teaching sociology of the Holocaust or who want to learn more. Understanding the post-Holocaust transformation in a social atmosphere has proven to be difficult, and has spawned a series of theories that can help explain how it became so or what will become of it. The chapter explains further that essays or writings which portray neo-functionalism and cultural studies deserve recognition or mention because these theories are limited in number by the domination of the rational choice theories.

Keywords:   sociology, post-Holocaust, neo-functionalism, cultural studies, rational choice theories
