No. 7 (1977)
This issue of Crime and Social Justice includes an influential article by the Schwendingers that challenges the legal definition of crime. Closely related is James Petras' analysis of the crimes that destabilized and then destroyed the democratic Chilean government led by Salvador Allende. Richard Speiglman does a case study on prison psychiatrists and drugs. It looks at how the practice of psychiatrists in the California prison system legitimizes new forms of repression for the state criminal justice apparatus. Gerda Ray analyzes the upsurge of police strikes, lobbying, and lawsuits as a new high point in organized militancy within the ranks of the police and Michael Belnap analyzes the mechanics of repression by the FBI during the 1917 to 1925 period.
