"A fascinating, timely, and richly `awry' contribution to recent work on problems of agency, affect, and the nature/culture debate generally. The introduction is superb, exact, and incisive. Shame and Its Sisters will be of real interest to a wide range of readers in the humanities, including history, literature, psychoanalytic theory, work on the problem of the body and the `subject,' systems theory, and more."-Mark Seltzer, Cornell University "Shame and Its Sisters will have a major impact on the study of culture in the coming years, and on several fronts. It is a significant contribution to the current rethinking of emotion and affect that promises to explore the limits of Freudian and dialectical models of the self, its pleasures, desires, and projects."-W.
