Description - Scapegoats by Tom Douglas
Scapegoats are a universal phenomenon, appearing in all societies at all times in groups large and small, whether public or private. This work examines the process of scapegoating from the perspectives of victims and perpetrators, tracing its development from earliest times as rite of atonement to the modern forms of avoidance of blame and victimization of innocents. The differences and similarities between the ancient and modern forms are examined to reveal that despite the modern logical explanations of behaviour, the mystical element in the form of superstition is still evident.
