Abstract:

For the past three years, Jon Ronson has traveled the world meeting recipients of famous public shamings, often while their shamings are in full force. These are people like us--people who, say, made a joke on social media that came out badly, or made a mistake at work. Once a transgression is revealed, collective outrage circles with the force of a hurricane, and the next thing they know, they're being torn apart, jeered at, demonized, sometimes even fired from their jobs. A great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. It's because justice has been democratized. The silent are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are being merciless. Ronson's journey results in an entertaining and eye-opening book about public shaming, and about shame as a form of social control. This is a powerful, funny, unique, and very human dispatch from the front lines in the escalating war on human nature and its flaws.--From publisher description.
