Description : So many parts of society target citizens of color for violence--what can be done? Violence as Seen Through a Prism of Color examines violence from a structural perspective, including violence in prisons, schools and colleges, churches, homes, and within political/corporate structures. This unique, hard-hitting book argues that individual violence stems from the structure of our society and its institutions. Most of the contributors are African- American educators and practitioners who have a thorough understanding of structural violence. Some have experienced political violence; others have expert knowledge of structural violence within the criminal justice system, educational institutions, and elsewhere--even in churches and homes. Their writings are undeniably, unflinchingly authentic--it is impossible not to be moved and enraged by what they have to say. The good news is that in addition to calling attention to the structural violence in our society they provide excellent insights on how the situation might be resolved. Violence as Seen Through a Prism of Color shows: that much of the violence within the criminal justice system stems from decisions made at the highest levels of government that minority offenders are much more frequently convicted and more harshly sentenced than their white counterparts how cultural racism contributes to the construction of motives for lynching, hate crime, and police violence against Americans of color such as Abner Louima, Amadou Diallo, and Rodney King how the judicial system encourages black on black violence by neglecting to halt criminal activities in non-white neighborhoods how, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, ”Poverty is the worst form of violence” You’ll also learn: how corporations are amassing great wealth through privatizing prisons and conscripting the labor of non-violent African-American prisoners how racial profiling affects people of color how the media has exploited black men imprisoned for minor drug offenses how and why violence occurs in and against the black church Helpful charts and tables (like one that names the corporations that use prison labor) supplement the material--you’ll be surprised at what you learn! Extensive references are included at the end of each chapter.

Description : The editors have gone beyond simply assembling a collection of readings by the leading scholars of sex and gender; they introduce a new way to conceptualize the interrelationships between gender relations and other systems of inequality and difference. The editors invoke the image of a prism, through which different groups are seen not as distinct, but in "a continuous spectrum". The prism approach illustrates the varied ways that gender is constructed relationally, and thus experienced differently. Toward this end, the editors draw from the most recent studies of women and men -- especially studies of gender relations in the context of different sexual, racial/ethnic, social class, physical abilities, age, and national citizenship contexts. Though the majority of articles in the book focus on issues in U.S. gender relations, the editors have included numerous articles that focus on international and transnational factors. Together, the articles in this book shed critical, yet at times optimistic, light on the possibilities for change.

Description : The editors and contributors to Color of Violence ask: What would it take to end violence against women of color? Presenting the fierce and vital writing of organizers, lawyers, scholars, poets, and policy makers, Color of Violence radically repositions the antiviolence movement by putting women of color at its center. The contributors shift the focus from domestic violence and sexual assault and map innovative strategies of movement building and resistance used by women of color around the world. The volume's thirty pieces—which include poems, short essays, position papers, letters, and personal reflections—cover violence against women of color in its myriad forms, manifestations, and settings, while identifying the links between gender, militarism, reproductive and economic violence, prisons and policing, colonialism, and war. At a time of heightened state surveillance and repression of people of color, Color of Violence is an essential intervention. Contributors.

Description : On September 11, 2001, America's 700,000 law enforcement officers were forcefully introduced to a new era in policing after Islamist terrorists perpetrated the most savage and horrific terrorist violence ever on American soil. In spite of the post 9/11 proliferation of information about Islamist terrorism, many law enforcement officers remain uninformed about the nature, scope, and reality of this threat. Even the FBI (America's lead law enforcement agency in the struggle against Islamist terrorism) fails to arm its agents with accurate and comprehensive information to understand this patient, merciless, and fanatical foe. This manual was prepared to address this knowledge void by explaining the underlying politico-religious motivations that drives Islamist terrorism. It contains chapters that explain Islamist terrorism and describe the history of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. The tenets of Islam and the ideology used to justify terrorist atrocities ranging from suicide/homicide bombings in Israel to the slaughter of school children in Beslan, Russia are documented. The history of Jihad, the oldest and most successful international Islamist group in the world, and how this group has established an effective subversive apparatus in America that works tirelessly to dismantle our democratic freedoms is described. The text explains that by using a “soft” form of Jihad, this group seeks to destroy Western ideals and democracy with the goal of replacing them with a fascist totalitarian ideology to obtain world domination and the forced imposition of a seventh century politico-religious system of law. The radicalization process that can lead apparently well-integrated Muslim citizens to terrorism is discussed, including the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorist groups. A summary of comprehensive information detailing the Islamist groups active within America and the dangers they pose to Homeland Security is provided. In addition, the Appendices contain an Arabic Name Analysis, Ritual Prayer-Salat, Jihad Holy War Verse in the Koran, Jihad campaigns in history, “The Last Night” letter by Muhammad Atta who was the leader in the 9/11 attacks, and an explanatory memorandum on the general strategic goal for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Perfect Enemy provides unbiased and accurate information to acquaint our law enforcement officers and Homeland Security officials with the Islamist mindset and threat. Knowing our adversaries is a fundamental first step in defeating their violent intentions and ensuring our survival, peace, and safety. (Publisher)
