Don’t miss the diverse contents of Issue 4:

  • Art reflects urban conflict in “Lost Angeles,” a slideshow of riveting photographs and two videos.  The L.A. theme continues with a hard look at human trafficking and sexual exploitation of foster kids, and the criminal enterprises of the inner city street gangs.
  • The barely acknowledged internment of Italian-Americans as alien enemies during WWII is examined, and in another article the ethical dilemma faced by journalists embedded by the Department of Defense in the Iraq War.
  • The novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin as a major contributor to the outbreak of the Civil War. And in another kind of war, the annual culture clash over the meaning of Christmas that has earned its own moniker, “The Christmas Wars.”
  • The healing circles amongst the indigenous peoples of British Columbia have made great strides to reconcile victims and offenders, but some female advocacy groups have found them lacking.
  • Hands-on advice on how the skills and techniques learned in the classroom salvaged a multi-cultural mediation for all parties.
  • Finally, but most importantly, a reflective tribute by graduate students in the NCRP program to Nelson Mandela who passed in December 2013.
