Two paths are inspired by Richard Quinneyâ€™s deep insights into self and society: a path that stimulates sociological imagination and helps us analyze the political economy of crime,and a path of personal and collective transformation. Following the first path,we discover that the problem of crime is a problem with social arrangements that thwart individual and collective potential; foster economic inequality; generate physical,emotional,and spiritual suffering; and necessitate participatory injustice.Following the second path,we recognize that personal and collective well-being is dependant on the understanding that the more we become conscious of being bound to othersâ€™well-being, the more the true self emerges and peace becomes our way.
