Book Description

16 Nov 2010 1847870287 978-1847870285
Gender, Crime and Victimisation is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book, exploring gender patterns in both offending and victimisation. It offers a thorough examination of how these patterns in society are variously established and represented, researched, explained and responded to by policy makers and criminal justice agencies.

Bringing together key theory, research and policy developments, the book combines perspectives on the study of criminology with those of victimology and gender studies - drawing particularly on the influence of feminism. It analyses processes of criminalisation and social control, and their structural biases. It explores fears, anxieties and worries about crime, as well as particular vulnerabilities to crime.

The book employs a range of learning devices to support the student reader, including:

o Chapter overviews

o Case studies and examples

o Study questions

o Further reading at the end of each chapter

o A comprehensive glossary

Comprehensive and robust, Gender, Crime and Victimisation provides a stimulating and topical overview that will appeal to undergraduates,

Product Description


'Pamela Davies has produced in this volume a very thorough and thorough going gendered analysis of both crime, responses to crime and criminal victimisation. Throughout this book Davies puts to the fore the Man Question and the Woman Question for both victimology and criminology in an accessible, clearly written and student focused manner whilst never losing sight of the complexities associated with centring the salience of gender. Students, practitioners and academics alike will gain much from this book and its thought provoking exploration of the question of gender and its relationship with crime and victimisation.'

Professor Sandra Walklate
Eleanor Rathbone Chair of Sociology, University of Liverpool

Davies has produced a thorough and comprehensive exploration of crime and victimization. It is written and presented in an engaging style making it an easy to digest read... The signposting used throughout the book, the extensive glossary of terms and the succession of study questions and activities will make this a particularly useful textbook for undergraduate students and their teachers.

Cheryl Allsop
Criminology and Criminal Justice

This thought-provoking and innovative text provides an excellent base for understanding issues of gender in the study of crime and victimisation. Although the study of gender issues in relation to criminal justice is now a well-established field (Walklate, 2004), the manner in which the author has structured this book to bring together research issues, developments in theory and issues of policy related to the study of gender, crime and victimisation is unique. The text offers original insight and critical discussion of these topics as they relate to both theory and practice.

I have a module at university called Gender and Crime, this book has helped me understand the concepts of gender crime and victimisation. It is structured and worded well and is very accessible, too. I would recommend this thoroughly. :)
