A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This insightful book lends depth and intimacy to the examination of violence in the everyday lives of African American men. Garfield delves into the motivations and reactions of these men, challenging stereotypes and creating a humanistic portrait of these individuals. -Alford A. Young Jr., University of Michigan, Ann Arbor How have African American men interpreted and what meaning have they given to social conditions that position them as the primary perpetrators of violence? How has this shaped the ways they see themselves and engage the world? Through Our Eyes provides a view of black men s experiences that challenges scholars, policy makers, practitioners, advocates, and students to grapple with the reality of race, gender, and violence in America. In this multilevel analysis Gail Garfield explores the chronological life histories of eight black men from the aftermath of World War II through the Cold War and into today and identifies the locations, impact, and implications of the physical, personal, and social violence that enters their lives.She addresses questions critical to understanding how race, gender, and violence are insinuated into black men s everyday existence and how experiences are constructed, reconstructed, and interpreted. By appreciating how African American men live through what it means to be black and male in America, this book envisions the complicated dynamics that devalue their lives, those of their families, and society. GAIL GARFIELD is an associate professor in the sociology department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice/CUNY and is the author of Knowing What We Know: African American Women s Experiences of Violence and Violation (Rutgers University Press).
