Abstract / Summary
Confronting Oppression, Restoring Justice examines the twin forces of oppression and injustice and how social policies, cultural institutions, and prevailing ideologies promote or sustain them. Using an internationally informed perspective, it unpacks concepts such as internalization of oppression, injustice, restorative justice, social exclusion, empowerment, and critical consciousness. Since publication of the first edition of the book, sweeping changes related to the market economy, immigration, wars in the Middle East, and political leadership have taken place in the United States and beyond. Authors van Wormer, Kaplan, and Juby have updated this respected text to ensure relevancy and bring focus to new issues and perspectives while also enhancing areas covered in the first edition.'I enjoyed reading this book. It is a treasure house of information and will provide students with a firm foundation to working in anti-oppressive and empowering ways. ... It is an impressive revision of the first edition.' —Lena Dominelli, Professor, Durham University
