The Many Faces of Shame is the first volume to capture the range of current viewpoints on the concept of guilt. As editor, Donald Nathanson has not only assembled internationally prominent authorities in the field, but has engaged them in extensive dialogue about their topic areas. The result is a collection of papers, both rich and provocative, which achieve a scholarly impact and resonance often missing in edited works. As a further enhancement of the book's unified tone, Dr. Nathanson has provided introductions to each chapter which places the authors both historically and theoretically, and outlines their emphases and contributions to our understanding of shame. Topics covered range from Leon Wurmser's seminal work on the relationship between shame and narcissism to Silvan Tomkins's chapter on shame's central place in affect theory; from Otto Allen Will's thoughts on the interaction between Sullivanian theory, psychosis, and shame to Emmett Wilson's overview of shame in the literature of French psychoanalysis and philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Every decade or so in the world of psychiatry and psychology, a book appears that opens up and explores a burgeoning new field and stimulates its further development. THE MANY FACES OF SHAME can claim to perform this essential service, leaving clinicians like myself grateful for the contributions of this pioneer effort. It enlarges theoretical perspectives and also enhances clinical skills in ways that are now curiously neglected. It is my belief that many patients, needful of help, are lost to treatment because the shame factors inherent in this situation have been overlooked."--E. James Anthony, MD

"Rich, provocative, and timely, this landmark volume explores the neglected domain of shame. Replete with implications for clinical practice, this book will be indispensable to every practicing clinician...and student of the psyche."--Gershen Kaufman, PhD
