[New publication]: “The Earth Liberation Front: A Movement Analysis”


A few days back the Journal of Radical Criminology (No. 2) published my paper, “The Earth Liberation Front: A Movement Analysis”.  Folks can order a print copy for $9 here.…or of course read it online for free, the way it was meant to be.

This paper was originally written with a slightly different focus and a noticeably different audience.  It was written within a Security/Terrorism Studies framework as part of my MLitt coursework at the Centre for the Study of Terrorism & Political Violence, University St Andrews.  It’s far more profiling of the ELF then I would venture to write now but I was seeking to explain a rather unpopular subject to a rather critical academic audience.

For whatever reason, with all the things I’ve written and published in the past three years, this paper (in its pre-editing, security-centric form) has always been the most read.  Since putting online a few months back, it has over 1,150 views.  If you compare this to things I have published in more centrist, mainstream (and better distributed) publications, the ELF article still dominates.

Tis a mystery.
