Gregory Shank, ed.
This issue features essays on the future implications of the great immigration battle of 2006, the deportation phenomenon in Europe and the Caribbean, pro-immigrant social movements, and the relationship of the war on drugs to the control of immigrant communities. Other contributions address current debates on the militarization of the public sphere, indefensible practices such as torture and state terror, and analytic approaches to crimes of the state and the powerful in the context of the globalization of social problems.
