Power, Violence and Justice
Reflections, Responses and Responsibilities

Edited by:


264 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This book provides sociological insights, theoretical perspectives, and glimpses into research in the diverse contexts that contribute to a deeper understanding of the complexities of power, violence, and justice. The contributions by an array of stellar authors, including several former International Sociological Association presidents, offer different foci in terms of an emphasis on the theoretical, historical, analytical, descriptive, and contextual. Topics covered include colonialism, migration, race, gender and intersectionality, social movements, security, environment, and education. Underlying many chapters also lies the question of what is the role that sociology plays and can play in moving us forward? Through their insights, these  authors stimulate us as academics and human beings, to reflect, respond, and share in the responsibility of countering the forces that perpetrate violence, subvert equality, and dilute the notion of justice. 

Written by distinguished international scholars, this is an essential reference work for researchers with an interest in Power, Violence, Social Justice, Human Rights, Public Sociology, Social Change and Social Movements.
