Review quote

"Now more than ever we need voices of humanity and critical reason to address the scandalous injustice of the so called 'criminal justice' system in the United States. The name of the eminent psychoanalyst, Erich Fromm, may at first seem a surprising addition to enter these lists, but as this valuable collection of his criminological essays along with contemporary work inspired by him shows, it is a welcome and entirely appropriate one." -- Joel Kovel, author of The Age of Desire: Reflections of a Radical Psychoanalyst "I consider this volume to be among the most important works of criminological theory to appear in my more than three decades in the field." -- Hal Pepinsky, professor of criminal justice, Indiana Universityshow more
