This book presents a collection of some of the best articles from the first ten issues of the journal. The book includes important discussions of street crime, rape, delinquency, female crime and imprisonment, as well as widely acclaimed contributions on criminological theorizing. The authors are, or have been, members of the editorial collective of Crime and Social Justice, and have taught criminology at the University of California, Berkeley. Like the journal, the book offers a series of insights and challenges not only to those working in criminology but to anyone active in the major struggles around law, crime and the state. It presents a clear and coherent response to those who question the need for and viability of a radical criminology.
