'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.
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.
