New Adventure Publishing, 27 August 2018
Paperback, 306 pages
This book combines practitioner scholarship with the voices of 42 contributors from various walks of life, depicting different experiences with a common thread, to co-produce knowledge about the impact of oppression(s) over time. It is a powerful read that flattens the artificial boundaries between lay and academic knowledge by putting an analytical tool – the structure of invisible/visible violence – in the hands of any person who is interested to understand the invisible mechanisms that produce high levels of visible violence, trauma and denial in society. More than two decades of practice and action research with participants from South Africa, and other countries on the continents of Africa, Asia, Latin America and Northern Europe form the foundation of Disrupting Denial. This book provides the reader with an adaptable framework within which to analyse, understand, and act on invisible/visible violence, trauma and denial in society.
