The Many Faces of Violence

Price $12.95; read the abstracts.

Vol. 32, No. 2 (2005)

Each contribution to this issue of Social Justice reveals a facet of the many forms that violence takes. Given its immediacy, we often focus on the scourge of interpersonal predatory violence. Arguably, though, structural violence, including racism, and institutional violence take a greater human toll. State violence, in the form of warfare, also damages the environmental basis for sustaining all life forms, sometimes irreparably. And the death penalty continues to take innocent lives and is biased in its application.
