is a book about structural violence
in Honduras by Adrienne Pine. In it, she "explores
the daily relationships and routines of urban Hondurans in light of globalizing forces and extreme social inequalities."
In this interview
, (longer version here
) she says she hopes that her book will raise awareness of inequality in Honduras. She also points out the similarities (and differences) between Ricardo Maduro's and Rudolph Giuliani's Zero Tolerance
policies and their consequences.
In the interview, she says "I have spoken with people from all over the political spectrum, which is my aim. I don't see the issue of structural violence as belonging to conservatives, liberals, deists, atheists, or any other group. It is something we should all be concerned with, and which I hope we can come together to change. But we have to start with a dialogue, with understanding."
