Editorial: Going Forth

Jeff Shantz


Welcome to the fourth issue of Radical Criminology. We hope you find it interesting and instigating. We began this project two years ago with a conviction about the need for a venue for the expression of radical perspectives in criminology and a commitment to bring together criminologists of the schools and of the streets in a common space. The great positive response to, and support for, the journal has been quite phenomenal. We have received notes of appreciation and encouragement from people on every continent. We have heard from academics and activists, criminologists and community organizers, alike. It has emphatically confirmed and deepened our belief that there is a substantial pressing need for venues for radical criminological analysis and agitation in the current period of law and order austerity and repression.
