The Hidden Structure of Violence: Who Benefits From Global Violence and War
/
StructureAuthors Mark Pilisuk and Jennifer Rountree discuss their new book, “The Hidden Structure of Violence:  Who Benefits From Global Violence and War.” They contend that organized violence is not an inescapable part of human existence, but is organized and carried out by the dominant social order to enhance its own power.



In the second half of the program, Tara Dorabji joins in to explain how violence and social control are wielded in two of the world’s occupied lands, Palestine and Kashmir, and the role women play in preserving life and culture in those areas, despite the occupiers’ brutality.

Marc Pilisuk teaches at Saybrook University; Jennifer Rountree works at the National Indian Child Welfare Association; Tara Dorabji works at Youth Radio and is a contributor to the forthcoming Project Censored 2016.
