No. 17 (1982)

This issue takes up Bertram Gross' challenge for progressive anticrime proposals, coupled with analyses of the political-economic crisis and the rise of the Right. It looks at the challenge to civil liberties, at health care issues for workers, and delinquency. It also stresses the importance of theoretical and methodological pieces, along with an equal emphasis upon praxis and social policy.
