Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair

Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair

by Sarah Schulman

In our society, there is, and has been, an unwillingness to tolerate the "other." As a group self-identifies as one thing, they form conflicts with others who represent their selves differently, and oftentimes this conflict is confused with abuse. In this book, Sarah Schulman identifies the differences between conflict and abuse and explains the scapegoating culture that leads to the confusion between the two.
