Scapegoat

Author(s): Charlie Campbell

History

'In the beginning there was blame. Adam blamed Eve, Eve blamed the serpent, and we' ve been hard at it ever since'
Scapegoat is a history of blaming other people. The world may have come a long way since the days when a goat was saddled with all society's iniquities and driven into the wilderness, but is our desperate need to find some thing or person to pin the blame on, and absolve ourselves of responsibility, really any more advanced?
Moving from the Bible to the modern economy, from medieval witch-burning to today's tabloid press, Scapegoat is a tale of human foolishness that exposes the anger and irrationality of blame-mongering while reminding readers of their own capacity for it.
Scapegoat follows the plight of all those who have found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is a superbly pertinent look at an inglorious past, uncovering countless stories of obsession, mania, persecution and injustice from the highest echelons of society to the lowliest outcast.
