Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness  (PEHW)
ISSN: 1471-5597
Volume 2. : June 2002  (themed issue:  Terrorism)
Submissions (along with a biographical blurb) are due on April 1, 2002

Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness publishes scholarly and creative=
 work, personal reflections, and practitioners' accounts relating to=
 classifying, defining, and probing different aspects of evil. It aims to=
 shed light on the genesis and manifestations of evil as well as on the=
 diverse angles from which humans can understand, tackle, surmount, or come=
 to terms with it. Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness does not=
 espouse any ideological viewpoint or favor any specific theoretical=
 framework, but interrogates a plurality of perspectives aimed at advancing=
 research on this topic.

Submissions are sought for the June 2002 volume to be devoted entirely to=
 the theme of terrorism. The volume hopes to present a panoply of possible=
 angles from which to engage this timely topic.  A wide array of relevant=
 theoretical, critical and professional perspectives is, therefore,=
 encouraged.  Of most interest will be contributions that add to, alter=
 and/or deepen, our current understanding of the phenomenon of terrorism.
