Ghostly Matters: Haunting and The Sociological Imagination
by Avery Gordon
Avery Gordon's book, Ghostly Matters: Haunting and the Sociological Imagination, offers an ethical approach to the study of structural violence's impact on everyday life. For Gordon, to encounter and listen to the ghosts of history unsettles what one thinks they know about the form and reach of racial, sexual and economic terror as well as the lingering effects on those who are forced to endure it. This text is essential for anyone committed to a less, harmful world and the new forms of engagement that help get us there.
