Fall 2017

Volume 93, Number 4

The fall issue looks at ways of justice—the shape it takes, how people seek it out, and its shifting definitions: from blood feuds reaching back generations to the US Border Patrol’s alarmingly broad jurisdiction; from portraits of criminal-justice systems around the world to a dissection of originalism. At the heart of the issue are fundamental questions about what justice means to those on either side of it.
