Gregory Shank (coord.)
Two themes stand out in this issue. The first concerns the intersection of race, class, and crime. Discussion centers on excessive police violence, criminalization based on racial and ethnic markers, the viability of electoral work versus strategies of civil disobedience, and the varieties of multiculturalism. The second theme revolves around patterns of state crime and human rights violations, ranging from Turkey, Southern Africa and the Horn of Africa, to Guatemala. A related topic is the silencing of women through overt political repression and the seemingly intractable problem of domestic violence in the form of battering in the United States.
