Radical Criminology 3

Authored by Radical Criminology
Designed by PJ Lilley
Edited by Jeff Shantz

Radical Criminology, edited by Jeff Shantz [Kwantlen Polytecnic University, Vancouver, British Columbia], is dedicated to bridging the gap between the academy and the global activist community, especially with regard to state violence, state-corporate crime, the growth of surveillance regimes, and the prison-industrial complex. More pointedly, the journal aims to be not simply a project of critique, but is also geared toward a praxis of struggle, insurgence, and practical resistance.
