Violence, Conflict, and World Order: Critical Conversations on State-Sanctioned Justice examines the interpersonal, institutional, and structural relations of injustice and violence, both domestically and globally, through a series of dynamic conversations that are rich with personal and passionate prose, gritty and grounded questioning, and, in several instances, spirited and lively debate. These conversations are attentive not only to the areas of cultural studies and social science in general, but also to the studies of criminology, criminal justice, and public policy in particular.
Gregg Barak is professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice at Eastern Michigan University and a Visiting Distinguished Professor and Scholar, College of Justice & Safety, Eastern Kentucky University, where the conversations occurred in the Spring of 2004.
