Reviews

Violence, Conflict, and World Order explores the relationship between globalizing social processes and recent changes in the level and forms of violence, representations of these changes and the varying state responses to them. It pinpoints how the development of neoliberal ideologies and forms of economic and political organization has an impact on a range of relationships between individuals and between individuals and wider institutional structures particularly when the consequences are criminal, repressive and socially destructive. The conversations introduce a wide range of contemporary, scholarly, and critical social scientific thinking accessible to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. Those involved with Criminology, Criminal Justice, Sociology, and Political Science Programs will be particularly interested.--Frank Pearce, Queens University
