The Berkeley School of Criminology stands, to this day, as one of the most significant developments in criminological thought and action. Its diverse participants, students and faculty, were true innovators, producing radical social analyses (getting to the roots causes) of institutions of criminal justice as part of broader relations of inequality, injustice, exploitation, patriarchy, and white supremacy within capitalist societies. Even more, they situated criminology as an active part of opposition to these social institutions and the relations of harm they uphold. Their criminology was directly engaged in, and connected with, the struggles of resistance that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Not surprisingly perhaps, they became a target of regressive and reactionary forces that sought to quiet those struggles. Notably the Berkeley School of Criminology was targeted by key players in the US military-industrial complex such as Ronald Reagan himself, then Governor of California and Regent of UC-Berkeley. Who Killed the Berkeley School by Julia and Herman Schwendinger, key players in the Berkeley School, is the first full-length, in-depth analysis of the Berkeley School of Criminology, its participants, and the attack against it. It tells the story of an important infrastructure of resistance, a resource of struggle, and how it was dismantled. It lays bare the role not only of conservatives but of liberal academics and false critical theorists, who failed to stand up in defense of the School and its work when called upon. This is a story with profound lessons in the current period of corporatization of campuses, neoliberal education, and market-driven curricula. It will be of interest to anyone concerned with developing resistance to the corporate campus and seeking critical alternatives. It also stands as a challenge to social science disciplines, including criminology, to develop a practice that identifies the roots of social injustice and organizes to confront it.

Homeland Fascism

This is an important analysis in a context in which concerns about fascist demagoguery and far right mobilization appear to be growing in the US and beyond.

"It can't happen here...." This has been the prevailing sentiment about the possible emergence of fascism in the United States since the rise of international fascism in the 1930s. Yet there are signs that it may already be happening, and at the highest levels of government.... In their copiously researched and documented work, the Schwendingers outline the structural transformations, policies, and practices that raise the prospect of fascist governance in the 21st Century United States. They show that a homeland fascism has significant supports within the framework of American liberal democracy. This is an important analysis in a context in which concerns about fascist demagoguery and far right mobilization appear to be growing in the US and beyond.

Psychiatric Aspects of Criminal Behavior

The works of Doctor Eugene Revitch are as relevant today as when they were published fifty years ago. This book has been written in the hopes these important works of Doctor Revitch will not be abandoned nor forgotten.

Eugene Revitch, M.D., was a prolific author, a seminal thinker, and truly ahead of his time. The papers he published many years ago are highly relevant today. He has written some of the first papers on sexual murder and sexual aggression long before there was widespread interest in these topics. He coined the term "conjugal paranoia," and was one of the first to study patients who kill their physicians, and made many contributions to the interface of psychiatry and neurology, specifically as it relates to explosive violence. The works of Doctor Eugene Revitch are as relevant today as when they were published fifty years ago. This book has been written in the hopes these important works of Doctor Revitch will not be abandoned nor forgotten. Among the key topics discussed in this volume are sex murders and aggression, mental disorders and crime, psychiatric aspects of epilepsy, and epileptoid violence. The first section of this book discusses extreme manifestations of sexual aggression and murder, the potential sex murderer, gynocide and unprovoked attacks on women, sexually motivated burglaries, and burglaries with sexual dynamics. The second section focuses on mental disorders and crime, the concept of psychopathic personalities, the pedophile offender, classification of offenders for prognostic and dispositional evaluation, patients who kill their physicians, the problem of conjugal paranoia, and the diagnosis and disposition of the paranoid marital partner. The third section explores the psychiatric and diagnostic problems in epilepsy, epileptic manifestations resembling psychiatric disorders, psychomotor paroxysms and manifestations of nonepileptic origin, and the social aspects of epilepsy. Case examples are used to illustrate specific points within various chapters. This book will make an important contribution in furthering the understanding of contemporary forensic issues, as well as the historic development of forensic psychiatric and psychological thoughts and practices. This unique and comprehensive text will prove invaluable to history buffs, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists, criminologists, legal professionals, and law enforcement personnel.
