About the Author

Luc Boltanski is Professor of Sociology at the Ecole des hautes etudes en sciences sociales, Paris


'When an injustice is committed, most of us simmer in anger and indignation and feel compelled to denounce the perpetrators. Yet, despite its widespread character, the actual social and emotional experience of injustice has hardly been studied. This book is the first major sociological study of denunciation, that most ordinary act present in personal and public life. Boltanski is the leading sociologist of his generation, and this book's virtuosity shows why.' Eva Illouz, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
