A Journal of Crime, Conflict & World Order

The Inaugural Issue of Crime and Social Justice:
A Journal of Radical Criminology

Out of print.

No. 1 (1974)

This first issue of Crime and Social Justice offered insights, materials, proposals, and programs for struggling against crime and repression, with the aim of giving voice to a radical criminology. The remarkable emergence of left-oriented schools of thought briefly overcame the continuing repression of radical scholars. The premier issue reflects the social protest by women, people of color, the poor, students, and many others, and sets the task of researching and writing about abortion laws, sexism, and the institutional practices for dealing with victims of rape, as well as the export of counterinsurgent police technologies, and the development of new technologies for the control of prisoners and parolees.

ISSN: 1043-1578. Published quarterly by Social Justice, P.O. Box 40601, San Francisco, CA 94140.
