This is an ethnographic collection of 12 edited talks and conversations from a conference on violence, conflict, and the world order held at Eastern Kentucky University. The conference was organized by Carole Garrison, Chair of Criminal Justice and Police Studies at EKU, who arranged for video recording and transcription of the talks and conversations. The collection is divided into two parts: domestic and global issues. Some of the topics examined include violence against women, restrictions on women's reproduction, culture and ideology, homeland security, terrorism and invasion, empire, and human rights. The talks themselves are framed by an insightful and exciting prologue and an intriguing epilogue by the editor.

Editorial Reviews

Frank Pearce
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.
