Erich Fromm and Critical Criminology

by Kevin Anderson

Erich Fromm and Critical Criminology Synopsis

The editors examine the influential writings of Fromm (his 100th Anniversary is in 2000) as they apply to criminology, showing how his humanist perspective can make for a more effective and humane way of dealing with crime and criminals.

Erich Fromm and Critical Criminology Press Reviews

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 University
