25th Anniversary Commemoration, Vol. 26: 2, 1999


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Gregory Shank, ed.

Twenty-eight contributors offer short memoirs, reflections, or longer critiques that commemorate a quarter century of publishing Social Justice. They candidly assess what has been accomplished (or not) since 1974 in terms of a progressive agenda and suggest future directions. The essays reflect the geographical diversity that has characterized the journal’s contents from the beginning. Authors from seven countries in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and the South Pacific reflect on the world order, state repression, and crime.
