The issues raised by the Nuremberg trials are dealt with in this book. These include: was it a necessary response to the crimes of the Third Reich?; how were Germany and the Germans capable of such extraordinary evil?; was the trial just, given the claims that the defendants were simply serving their country, doing as they had been told to do?; and if not just, was it nonetheless necessary as a warning to prevent future crimes against humanity?;The author's approach to these and other questions of justice is made through examination of each of the defendants in the trial. His conclusion is: ""In a world of mixed human affairs where a rough justice is done that is better than lynching or being shot out of hand, Nuremberg may be defended as a political event if not as a court"". Some sentences may have seemed too severe, but none was harsher than the punishments meted out to innocent people by the regimes these men served. ""In a certain sense"", says Davidson, ""the trial succeeded in doing what judicial proceedings are supposed to do: it convinced even the guilty that the verdict against them was just"".
