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? The second edition of ocial Justice: Theories, Issues, and Movements responds to the need for a comprehensive introduction to these issues.
