Paradoxically the turn towards validating identity has intensified our sense of vulnerability." - Frank Furedi, Professor of Sociology, School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, UK
"Surviving Identity provides an incisive analysis of victim culture and the growing tendency to seek therapeutic solutions to the problems of everyday life." - David Wainwright, Senior Lecturer, School of Health, University of Bath, UK
"This book must be read by teachers, social workers, mental health professionals, charity workers, trade unionists and all who do not want to see their professional work reinforcing and celebrating a ‘survivor’ mentality." - Dennis Hayes, Head of the Centre for Educational Research, University of Derby, UK
