This chapter re-evaluates Stanley Cohen's classic sociological study of scapegoating mechanisms in light of Renee Girard's anthropology of mimesis and rivalry. Like Cohen's work, it looks at the nature of media, and mediation, and seeks to use Girard, and a variety of recent postmodern theories of media, to make new sense of this old problem.
