Focus on Racism

Price $15.00

No. 14 (1980)

The primary focus of this issue of Crime and Social Justice is on racism. The secondary focus is on punishment. The two themes overlap and interconnect, of course, given the enormously high and disproportionate concentration of racial and national minorities in prison. This issue features reprints of the hard-to-find "Concerning the Shooting of Eulia Love" and of an empirical study by Frederic Soloman et al. on civil rights activity and the reduction of violent crimes among African American youth; plus review essays by Jim Thomas et al. on the penitentiary and a biographical essay on Georg Rusche by Dario Melossi.

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