Muraskin (criminal justice, Long Island U.) and nearly 40 other contributors examine a variety of issues surrounding women and the criminal justice system. Beginning with an historical approach, including an evaluation of women's involvement in the criminal justice system during the Salem Witch Trials and slave women's resistance or accommodation as a precursor to modern African American women's roles, the book demonstrates how current female criminality is related to historical stereotypes. It includes discussions of women in the judiciary and police force; women and drugs; women in prison; women as victims of violence; abortion; and girls and delinquency. An index would have been useful. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
