About the book: Anger is not just ubiquitous, it is also popular. Many people think it is impossible to care sufficiently for justice without anger at injustice. Many believe that it is impossible for individuals to vindicate their own self-respect or to move beyond an injury without anger. To not feel anger in those cases would be considered suspect.

Covering has thus far been associated with assimilation. In the name of commonality, individuals are pressured to repress their particular individual identity and adjust to the general standards of society. Though one can speak in favour of assimilation in a society plagued with diversity, the covering undertaken by individuals comes with a price.
