Bringing together leading scholars in the fields of criminology, international law, philosophy and architectural history and theory, this book examines the interrelationships between architecture and justice, highlighting the provocative and curiously ambiguous juncture between the two. Illustrated by a range of disparate and diverse case studies, it draws out the formal language of justice, and extends the effects that architecture has on both the place of, and the individuals subject to, justice. With its multi-disciplinary perspective, the study serves as a platform on which to debate the relationships between the ceremonial, legalistic, administrative and penal aspects of justice, and the spaces that constitute their settings. The structure of the book develops from the particular to the universal, from local situations to the larger city, and thereby examines the role that architecture and urban space play in the deliberations of justice. At the same time, contributors to the volume remind us of the potential impact the built environment can have in undermining the proper juridical processes of a socio-political system. Hence, the book provides both wise counsel and warnings of the role of public/civic space in affirming our sense of a just or unjust society.

Set on a hillside near Cluny, in a region associated with religious institutions and sacred architecture (including Le Corbusier's La Tourette), Le Carmel de la Paix, designed by José Luis Sert, remains tranquilly unvisited and quietly erased from architectural history. Why? This unusual convent falls outside the standard categories of Sert's architecture and has been overlooked in most publications about his work. As J.K. Birksted explains, the design and construction process for this building proved nightmarish, resulting in a building which, at first sight, appears to be 'ineloquent'. This first detailed examination of this building shows how the convent and the story of its creation offer valuable and important new insights into Sert, his architecture and his life. However, the study also opens up discussions on wider subjects such as the relationships between modernist architecture and ecclesiastical architecture. The design and construction of the Carmel de la Paix (1968-1972) followed the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican (1962-1965), which introduced fundamental changes and proposals for renewing the relationship between the Church and the changing modern world and the convent provides an interesting illustration of this period. In addition, it offers insights into the fascinating world of the Carmelite order and its specific liturgical requirements, and, reflecting on the nuns' active involvement in the design and construction process, it also explores wider issues of women in architecture.

Disability offers a new lens through which to view the effectiveness of access to justice, and the inclusiveness of the justice system as a whole. This book analyses the experience of people with disabilities through the entire justice system, from making a complaint, to investigation, and through the court/tribunal process. It also considers the participation of people with disabilities in a variety of roles in the justice system - as witness, defendant, complainant, plaintiff, lawyer, judge and juror. More broadly, it also critically examines the subtle barriers of access to justice which might exist in a given society - including barriers to grassroots disability advocacy, legal education and training, the right to vote and the right to stand for election which may apply to people with disabilities. The book is international and comparative in scope with a focus primarily on examples of legal practice and justice systems in common law countries. The work will be of interest to scholars working in the areas of human rights, equality and non-discrimination, disability rights activists and legal professionals who work with people with disabilities to achieve access to justice.

Die reich bebilderte Publikation schlägt in ihrem Text den Bogen vom Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts bis in die Gegenwart. Beginnend mit den italienischen Futuristen schildert die Autorin profund die parallele Entwicklung der nachrevolutionären russischen Futuristen, der schweizerischen Dadaisten und der französischen Surrealisten bis hin zum deutschen Bauhaus. In der Fülle an Neuerungen auf literarischem, musikalischem und darstellendem Gebiet zeigt sich der revolutionäre Elan der Kunst der Zwischenkriegszeit. Im zweiten Teil der Publikation beschäftigt sich die Autorin eingehend und kenntnisreich mit den Formen der Performance Art von der Nachkriegszeit bis in die 1970er und 1980er Jahre. Der Band schließt mit ausführlichen Bemerkungen zu den Veränderungen im 21. Jahrhundert vor dem Hintergrund der neuen Möglichkeiten des digitalen Zeitalters.

Seit einigen Jahren wird in den Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften international kaum ein Phänomen so lebhaft diskutiert wie das der Globalisierung. Nachdem die zu Anfang vorherrschende Sichtweise von Globalisierung als Entwicklung einer homogenen Weltkultur zunehmend an Evidenz verlor, rücken die lokal unterschiedlichen kulturellen Praktiken und Perspektiven als Teil von Globalisierung ins Zentrum des Interesses. Diese Neujustierung des Fokus erlaubt auch längst überfällige neue Lesarten des vermeintlich einfachen Verhältnisses von »Amerikanisierung« und Globalisierung. Dabei wird deutlich, dass die oft als »Amerikanisierung« wahrgenommene Globalisierung weltweit heterogene Resonanzen erzeugt, hybride Kulturen, Fluchtlinien und Gegenbewegungen treten gleichermaßen hervor. Der Band »Globales Amerika«, in dem sich einige der prominentesten Denker der Globalisierung zu Wort melden, präsentiert anregende Lektüren dieser bislang wenig beleuchteten Seite der Globalisierung und leistet damit einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Verständnis des Problems insgesamt. Für das 21. Jahrhundert erweist sich die Perspektive eines »methodologischen Kosmopolitismus« (Ulrich Beck) als richtungsweisend.
