'Participating in a recent revival of philosophical interest in the phenomenon of shame and its relation to our identities and practical lives, Michael Morgan's book makes a passionate and philosophically intelligent case for regarding shame as fundamental to the kinds of social beings we are.' - Alice Crary, the New School for Social Research, USA 'Deeply engaging and very easy to read. The subject Morgan addresses is timely and important. On Shame provides philosophical analysis in a way that should be accessible to the educated reader, and mixes this analysis effectively with current events, literature, film and psychology. I suspect many people will be grateful for the help it provides in thinking more deeply about difficult issues that cannot be ignored.' - Marya Schechtman, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
