Criminology at the Crossroads: Feminist Readings in Crime and Justice

Synopsis

This anthology contains key works in criminology and law by well-known feminist scholars, including Carol Smart, Kristin Bumiller, Hilary Allen, Meda Chesney-Lind, Kathleen Ferraro, and Regina Austin. Themes include the construction of women in feminist, legal and criminological discourses; the blurred boundaries of victimization and criminalization; masculinities and violence; and intersections of class-race-gender. Daly and Maher's introduction gives a brief overview of the field, past and present, and analyses shifts in feminist thinking from the 1970s to the 1990s.
