"A fascinating, timely, and richly 'awry' contribution to recent work on problems of agency, affect, and the nature/culture debate generally. The introduction is superb, exact, and incisive. "Shame and Its Sisters" will be of real interest to a wide range of readers in the humanities, including history, literature, psychoanalytic theory, work on the problem of the body and the 'subject, ' systems theory, and more."--Mark Seltzer, Cornell University
