"For while it is in some sense true that 'we' all live in a global age of trauma, it is also the case that we do not share the burden of trauma equally, and that trauma takes different (shapeless) shape along the lines of race, gender, ability, and economic status . . .We must find a way to think-and to think clearly." -- Mary-Jane Rubenstein, from the afterword
In this diverse collection, Boynton and Capretto bring together thinkers from a range of disciplines in order to explore the contributions of particular disciplines to trauma studies and the limits of those contributions. This sort of intentionally interdisciplinary conversation is rare in trauma studies literature, so in that respect this book makes a significant contribution. * Choice *
