This issue of Social Justice (Vol. 33, No. 2) is the first of two on the topic, with both edited by Edward J. McCaughan and Emmanuel David. The essays here explore many dimensions of the role of art in processes of social change. Some address the power of art as a voice of dissent, as a tool for advancing social justice and democracy, as the core of a revolutionary strategy, and as a source of memory and future ways of knowing. Other essays warn about the art of power, such as government and art world censorship, the co-optive ability of capitalism, and the blinding force of Western rationalization. 170 pages.
