Radical Criminology: Theory and Practice (July 2021)

The new issue of Socialism and Democracy includes a review I wrote comparing two recent books from AK Press: Classic Writings in Anarchist Criminology: A Historical Dismantling of Punishment and Domination and Beyond Survival: Strategies and Stories from the Transformative Justice Movement.  One is anarchist-focused, rooted mainly in the nineteenth century, and mostly theoretical.  The other is feminist-focused, contemporary, and practical.  The two books could not be more different — which, I suggest, is something of a problem.

(The review is behind a paywall, but you can see the first page here.)

More fully uniting theory and practice – by pointing out how they have become misaligned – is adrienne marie brown’s We Will Not Cancel Us (also from AK Press).  The book constitutes a feminist reconsideration of cancel culture.  I reviewed it for the IAS website.
