This book takes James Gilligan’s model as a starting point for an application of shame/violence theory across cultures, disciplines and levels of analysis. It critically engages with the concept of shame, exploring its existential origins, the emotional, linguistic, cognitive and cultural manifestations and symptoms, and its relationship with other emotions. This chapter outlines the background work that led to the production of this volume, as well as the book’s aims, theoretical underpinnings, innovative approaches and format. It also previews the book’s chapters across the four parts of theory, practice, culture and politics, and community, identity and current affairs.
