Physicists study physical space. Geneticists study biological space. In Our Quest for Effective Living, author Fred Emil Katz studies social space. This isn’t the kind of social space we access through Facebook or an Internet chat room, but the interchanges between creatures and their surroundings. Katz, a sociologist and a Kindertransport survivor of the Holocaust, has previously published two books that present convincing explanations of how good people can do horrible things.
