"... no understanding of crime and control is complete with-out an informed insight into the ways in which power and equality shape social and concrete realities. At once accessible and sophisticated, The New Primer in Radical Criminology succeeds in providing such insight both to the professional criminologist and to the beginning student. We are fortunate that Primer ... will continue to serve as an invaluable survey of critical criminology's theoretical and research contributions."Prof. Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor, University of Cincinnati

The third edition of this text defines radical criminology as a way of doing criminology that frames the problem of crime in terms of class, race, gender, culture and history. Whereas the preceding edition, published in 1989, viewed social class as the central focus of radical criminology, over the past decade the scope of radical criminology has expanded to include race, gender, culture, history, post-modernism and left-realism, among other movements.

The Road

Author: Jack London

Publisher: Rutgers University Press

ISBN: 0813540127

Page: 224

In 1894, eighteen-year-old Jack London quit his job shoveling coal, hopped a freight train, and left California on the first leg of a ten thousand-mile odyssey. His adventure was an exaggerated version of the unemployed migrations made by millions of boys, men, and a few women during the original “great depression” of the 1890s. By taking to the road, young wayfarers like London forged a vast hobo subculture that was both a product of the new urban industrial order and a challenge to it. As London’s experience suggests, this hobo world was born of equal parts desperation and fascination. “I went on ‘The Road,’” he writes, “because I couldn't keep away from it . . . because I was so made that I couldn’t work all my life on ‘one same shift’; because—well, just because it was easier to than not to.” The best stories that London wrote about his hoboing days can be found in The Road, a collection of nine essays with accompanying illustrations, most of which originally appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine between 1907 and 1908. His virile persona spoke to white middle-class readers who vicariously escaped their desk-bound lives and followed London down the hobo trail. The zest and humor of his tales, as Todd DePastino explains in his lucid introduction, often obscure their depth and complexity. The Road is as much a commentary on London’s disillusionment with wealth, celebrity, and the literary marketplace as it is a picaresque memoir of his youth.

Escape to Prison

Penal Tourism and the Pull of Punishment

The resurrection of former prisons as museums has caught the attention of tourists along with scholars interested in studying what is known as dark tourism. Unsurprisingly, due to their grim subject matter, prison museums tend to invert the “Disneyland” experience, becoming the antithesis of “the happiest place on earth.” In Escape to Prison, the culmination of years of international research, noted criminologist Michael Welch explores ten prison museums on six continents, examining the complex interplay between culture and punishment. From Alcatraz to the Argentine Penitentiary, museums constructed on the former locations of surveillance, torture, colonial control, and even rehabilitation tell unique tales about the economic, political, religious, and scientific roots of each site’s historical relationship to punishment.

This student-friendly text provides a comprehensive and unique view into the world of women interacting with the criminal justice system. Authors Stacy L. Mallicoat and Connie explore key topics on women as victims, offenders, and criminal justice workers as they interact with various areas in criminal justice. They investigate relevant subjects that are not found in many traditional texts, including women who work as victim advocates, and international issues of crime and justice for women. They highlight important discussions such as rape in the military or the Girls Scouts Beyond Bars program, and offer case studies on well-known offenders such as Mary Kay Letourneau and Andrea Yates. The text also provides a unique vignette on the story of Karla and Diana, two childhood friends whose lives take a dramatic turn throughout different aspects of the criminal justice system. This vignette, a composite of many subjects and case studies from the authors' research and field experiences, highlights many of the major concepts for each chapter.

Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice is the first text to fully integrate concepts of anti-oppressive practice with generalist practice course content. This comprehensive approach introduces concepts of social justice and offers detailed insight into how those principles intersect with the practice of social work at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The book covers ethics, values, and social work theory, and discusses the fundamentals of working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. The book also highlights policy and social movement activism and practice within a global context. Maintaining an integrative approach throughout, authors Karen Morgaine and Moshoula Capous-Desyllas effectively bridge the gap between anti-oppressive principles and practice, and offer a practical, comprehensive solution to schools approaching reaccreditation under the mandated CSWE Standards. ? “Provides an important step in the ongoing evolution of generalist practice in social work. It continues a rich tradition [that] challenges the profession to become more and more explicit about the revolutionary aspect of practice.” —Christian Itin, Metropolitan State University of Denver “Offers a fresh perspective of social work practice interventions.” —Terrence Allen, North Carolina Central University
