The June Issue of Global Dialogue (GD6.2) has now been posted. We lead off with Aldon Morris’s much celebrated recovery of W.E.B. Du Bois’ centrality to US and world sociology. Donatella della Porta writes about how she came to be one of the leading theorists of social movements. We have a section on Middle East politics, starting with Sari Hanafi describing the state of sociology in the Arab world, followed by a biopolitical account of the Lebanese garbage crisis, and then an intense debate between Lisa Hajjar and Amitai Etzioni on the violence of the Israeli state.  Next are the biographies of two sociologists of enormous courage, integrity, imagination and modesty, noted for the space and inspiration they created within authoritarian regimes: Vladimir Yadov in the Soviet Union and Yuan Shen in today’s China. We have special columns on the sociology of climate change, recent student protests in India, writing for research as well as introductions to the Global Dialogue team from Kazakhstan. Finally, we publish a collection of articles introducing Austrian sociology to ISA members in preparation for the Forum in Vienna, July 10-14.  I hope to see many of you there in just over a month!
