Stigma is a powerful social force by which individuals and communities throughout history have been systematically dehumanized, scapegoated, and oppressed. From the literal stigmatizing (tattooing) of criminals in ancient Greece, to modern day discrimination against Muslims, refugees and the "undeserving poor," stigma has long been a means of upholding the interests of the status quo.

In this radical reconceptualization Imogen Tyler precisely and passionately outlines the political function of stigma as an instrument of state coercion. Through an original social and economic reframing of the history of stigma, Tyler reveals stigma as a political practice, illuminating previously forgotten histories of resistance against stigmatization, boldly arguing that these histories provide invaluable insights for understanding the rise of authoritarian forms of government today.
