    Abstract:

    Gringo Justice is a comprehensive analysis and interpretation of the experiences of the Chicano people with the legal and judicial system in the United States. Beginning in 1848 and working to the present, a theory of Gringo justice is developed and applied to specific areas-displacement from the land, vigilantes and social bandits, the border, the police, gangs, and prisons. A basic issue addressed is how the image of Chicanos as bandits or criminals has persisted in various forms.

    Liberation theology--Congresses, Poverty--Religious aspects--Catholic Church--Congresses
    Abstract:

    Since the publication of Gustavo Guti\u00Errez’s 1973 groundbreaking work, A Theology of Liberation, much has been written on liberation theology and its central premise of the preferential option for the poor.

    Abstract:

    The primary goal of this collection is to present the rationale and methodology for implementing a citizen audit of democracy.
