Period. … The authors do a masterful job of explaining the nation’s shift from a culture of honor, to a culture of dignity, to one of victimhood. … Required reading for those seeking to move beyond the seeming downward spiral of becoming a nation of victims.” (J. R. Mitrano, Choice, Vol. 56 (1), September, 2018)
“Sociologists Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning have produced the first systematic theoretical analysis of the moral culture of “victimhood” emerging on university campuses. … This book is an important addition to the sociology of morality in its documentation of the contours of a newly emerging moral culture.” (Kevin Mccaffree, skeptic.com, February, 2018)
