Radical Criminology 1 (Volume 1)


(as of 06/23/2018 at 08:42 UTC)


Radical Criminology, edited by Jeff Shantz [Kwantlen Polytecnic University, Vancouver, British Columbia], is dedicated to bridging the gap between the academy and the global activist community, especially with regard to state violence, state-corporate crime, the growth of surveillance regimes, and the prison-industrial complex. More pointedly, the journal aims to be not simply a project of critique, but is also geared toward a praxis of struggle, insurgence, and practical resistance.
