A Journal of Crime, Conflict & World Order

The Second Edition on Radical Criminology

Out of print.

No. 2 (Summer 1974)

This issue of Crime and Social Justice includes articles on Cuba, Vietnam, India, and on European criminology. Recognizing that the U.S. government has developed and legitimized criminal justice systems around the world in Brazil, South Vietnam, South Korea, Israel, Iran, and Ethiopia, the issue shows that to treat criminology as only a domestic issue is to restrict our understanding of repression and resistance. It points to the need to analyze the international implications of the U.S. criminal justice system because struggles here are deeply affected by those throughout the world. Breaking through the insularity of mainstream criminology is needed to transform a system that is itself criminal. The Pedagogy section promotes a radical theory and practice of education, though radical course content alone does not eliminate the repressive relationships of traditional classroom settings.
