Social Justice free pdf An eye for an eye, the balance of scales - for centuries, these and other traditional concepts exemplified the public's perception of justice. Today, popular culture, including television shows like "Law and Order", informs the public's vision. But do age-old symbols, portrayals in the media, and existing systems truly represent justice in all of its nuanced forms, or do we need to think beyond these notions? In "Social Justice: Theories, Issues, and Movements", Loretta Cape-heart and Dragan Milovanovic respond to the need for a comprehensive introduction to this topic. The authors argue that common conceptions of criminal justice - which accept, for the most part, a politically established definition of crime - are too limited. Instead, they show the relevancy of history, political economy, culture, critique, and cross-cultural engagement to the advancement of justice. Drawing on contemporary issues ranging from globalization to the environment, this essential textbook - ideal for course use - encourages practitioners, reformists, activists, and scholars to question the limits of the law in its present state in order to develop a fairer system at the local, national, and global levels.
