About the Edition

A social science dictionary of 1,303 entries that questions established beliefs cloaked in forms of institutionalized life - the linked functions of family, religion, economy, and state. The spirit of the provocateur is felt throughout an analysis that is a mix of observations, interpreted by the social sciences, religious and philosophical views to give meaning to paradoxes and dysfunctions created by their own devices forming barriers to the realization of policies improving the human condition. Yet the lust of power, the vice of disingenuous ambitions and motives of personages, and institutional actors, they remain the sources of failed governance - its latest form, a corporatist state that functions on engineered problems designed to feed the prison, military, and surveillance industrial complexes.
