BeschreibungNobody before has argued that traumas form collective identities. Most treat traumas as accidental; these authors regard them as fundamental, recurring, and constructed, and in thus potentially positive. Trauma is of wide interest post-9/11; this book provides a blueprint for what's been happening; Smelser has written a postscript on this topic.
