Editorial Reviews

CHOICE, June 2010 - R.D. McCrie
These readings could provide insightful succor to social science graduate students finding their way into academe—or out of it.... Highly recommended.
Gilbert Geis
Critical criminology is the last current frontier of social science where scholars vibrantly give voice to their displeasure and outrage at the injustice that surrounds us. Critical Voices in Crimininology offers personal recitals of the pleasures and pitfalls of going against the technocratic academic tide. It provides information about how many of the contributors became dedicated critics of the status quo, and it reports on their crusades. The book is an eye-opener that should hearten readers who will learn that there are alternative academic paths that strive to make the world a better place for all of us.
