In scapegoating one thing is clear. The individual, group, or object that is deemed the scapegoat had been perceived as the cause of the troubling circumstances and has become the target of aggression. Scapegoating is the quintessential example of a ritual practice that magically shapes the natural world The scapegoa's sacrifice enables the group to live another day and indelibility makes the survivors a tighter-knit group.

I purchased this book expecting it would add something of substance to the other scapegoating books in my library. It didn't. The author has cherry-picked through a host of texts in an apparent attempt to justify his bias that scapegoats are not victims but co-conspiritors in their plight. Most troubling is that he manages to insert into his 'examples' a peculiar pro-Iranian bias against Israel, throwing Israel in with the likes of our world's most threatening anti-Israel/anti-American nations. (The seemingly compassionate nod to Holocaust victims at the book's end made me wonder if someone he either respects or fears read his manuscript and cautioned him he'd best soften his bias before he headed to the printer.) On the whole, this thing is so poorly edited and repetitive that it has the feel of an amateurish high-school term paper whose teen author struggled to meet teacher's minimum-word requirement. You should know up front that Clifton Wilcox's doctorate is in management, not psychology; while he is free as anyone else to put his opinions in book form, he is absolutely not qualified to make assessments about pathology and he absolutely should not be turned loose in any workplace to flex his theories (it isn't lost on me that he is a Labor Relations Specialist within one of the country's most corrupt and dysfunctional workplaces: the federal government). But for some rather misplaced historical examples, the book is a waste of money and may well leave readers who've been true victims of scapegoat violence re-traumatized. Reach for Vimala Pillari's Scapegoating in Families or Tom Douglas's Scapegoats: Trasfering Blame for much better works on this topic.

Imagine yourself browsing through the business & economics section of your local bookstore when you come upon a rather odd looking seemingly, out of place little paperback titled `Scapegoat: Targeted for Blame'. The first thing that should grab your attention is the absurd, rather juvenile looking cover art portraying what looks like an amateur ski. We see pictured here a young man at work surrounded by three fellow employees. He is obviously the focus of their attention as he certainly should be, sitting there in a dark shirt sporting a bullseye on his chest and wearing a Halloweenish cap that resembles a goats head. If one were to form an opinion on what lies within one would probably assume it to be a joke book. One could only assume that this must be a misplaced joke book and nothing more.

Another misleading assumption the prospective reader may make concerning this book is in thinking that there isn't much food for thought within. After all it's but a mere 169 pages in length, nothing more than a little light reading before bed one might think.

However as we all should know by now, first impressions can be misleading. If you take the time to move past the cover and slender appearance and look inside one will find an amazingly well researched and scholarly study on a social phenomenon that has existed since mankind first began to gather together and form communities. Yes even in this so-called advanced world that now describes and defines both personal and business interactions into such antiseptic terminology as interfacing and networking we discover that some social/communal processes continue to function as they always have. We all still need someone to blame, someone to absolve us of any guilt or blame when something goes awry. We still need a sacrificial lamb, or scapegoat.

Make no mistake about it, `Scapegoat: Targeted for Blame' is a difficult read. It's not a book someone would pick up for a casual read, it's more likely one to be found on the required reading list for a college undergraduate (or graduate for that matter) course. This book provides valuable resource material that would be useful not only to those enrolled in business/management courses, its officially designated audience, but I can see the material relating well to the fields of sociology, psychology and history as well. If you plan to sit down and read this one be sure to put on your thinking cap!
