Gregory Shank, ed.
This issue of Social Justice examines the historical roots of recent forms of domestic spying and the fear campaigns that justify such programs–as well as the wars on crime, drugs, and terror. Authors look at how globalization affects policing practices in the United States, including the policing of protest and of inner-city youth, with the associated scandals and abuse. Articles consider activist responses to paramilitary policing of peaceful protest and to anti-gang units. Finally, the issue explores the forces behind the push to try juveniles in adult criminal courts.
