9780335225231: Gender and Crime: A Reader (Readings in Criminology and Criminal Justice)

Focusing explicitly on questions of gender and crime, Evans and Jamieson guide the reader through a range of classic and groundbreaking studies, highlighting key contributions and debates and providing an indication of the new directions an engendered criminology may take us in coming years.

This engaging reader is divided into five sections, mapping the theoretical, empirical, and practical developments that have endeavoured to identify the ways in which gender informs criminology. Issues addressed by the readings include:

  • Female offending
  • Gendered patterns of victimisation
  • The gendered nature of social control
  • Masculinity and crime
  • Placing gender in an international context
Evans and Jamieson’s powerful concluding chapter clearly sets out the achievements and the challenges that the gender and crime question has posed for criminology. They argue that unless the question of gender remains at the forefront of criminological endeavours, criminology will fail to offer an agenda informed by an understanding of social justice that strives to be attentive to both victims and offenders, whether they be male or female.

Gender and Crime is key reading for students of criminology, criminal justice and gender studies.
