Pepinsky and Jesilow's Myths That Cause Crime is free online
Many thanks to Ken Mentor who has just put a pdf scan of the last
edition of Paul Jesilow's and my book up on www.critcrim.org , the website of the critical criminology division of the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. (The book received the acjs outstanding book award in 1986.) Paul and I hold the copyright
and figured it was high time we found a place
where people can read and use it for free. l&p--hal

I retired Jan. 2009 from after 33 years on the criminal justice faculty at Indiana University, Bloomington. I continue not to charge for any form of public service, including speaking and consulting, and now have plenty of free time to do so on request. I do not do social networking. I regularly monitor just one email account: firstname.lastname@example.org; my home phone number is 1-614-885-6341; my skype name is halpep. My papers and such are archived at http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/findingaids/view?brand=general&docId=InU-Ar-VAA9639.xml&doc.view=entire_text.
I am known as a co-founder of "peacemaking criminology." Page proofs of my latest, 2006 U of Ottawa Press book, Peacemaking: Reflections of a Radical Criminologist, are freely available at http://critcrim.org/sites/default/files/Pepinsky_proofs_0.pdf , the end of which lists my publications, nine books and over 80 articles and chapters in all, on a wide range of subjects from the international to the interpersonal level. My preceding book, A Criminologist's Quest for Peace, is also freely available at http://critcrim.org/pepinsky, and a pdf of Myths That Cause Crime is on the critcrim.org home page.
