and ANARCHY 32

ANARCHY 9 on Prison contained an account of the sociology of the prison community, “the captive society”, a discussion of penal reform from an anarchist point of view, a description of two kinds of therapeutic community (the work of Merfyn Turner at Norman House and of Maxwell Jones at the Henderson Hospital), and the impressions of recent inmates of Holloway and of Washington DC Jail. We doubt if anyone could read ANARCHY 9 and retain any faith in the penal system.

ANARCHY 32 on Crime begins with a study by Ian Stuart of the concept of crime from an anarchist point of view, illustrated by current delinquency statistics. This is followed by an account of the Sacco-Vanzetti trials “The crimes that were committed against Sacco and Vanzetti were the crimes that are committed in the name of ‘law and order’ every day in every land …” An article on Anarchism and Social Control seeks to develop from the views of the classical anarchists and from more recent sociological thinkers a concept of the social ‘containment’ of anti-social acts.
