About the Author
Julia and Herman Schwendinger were among the main participants in the Berkeley School of Criminology. Their innovative works have made crucial contributions to the development of radical criminology, particularly in areas of the exploitation of women and women’s resistance, adolescent subcultures, surveillance, class analysis, and sociological theory. Among their books are "The Sociologists of the Chair," "Adolescent Subcultures and Democracy," and "Rape and Inequality." Their significant innovations in criminology are recognized with their inclusion in the text "Fifty Key Thinkers in Criminology" (Routledge, 2013). Activists as well as academics, Julie helped found the first rape resistance crisis center in the US. Both were actively involved in anti-racist, anti-war, feminist, labor, and community struggles over the course of decades (some of which are described in "Who Killed the Berkeley School"). Both taught for years at SUNY New Paltz, as well as held numerous visiting professorships. Julia and Herman were married for almost 68 years, true life partners and intellectual collaborators. Julia passed away in 2013 but her profound legacy continues.
