about this item

Exactly what role does gender play in crime, and in the criminal justice system? Addressing this two-part question from the perspective of the offender, the victim, the community, and the overall justice system, Andrew Wilczak provides an accessible introduction to the full range of issues involved. Notably, this comprehensive text: features an inclusive focus on both men and women; encompasses theory, as well as realities on the ground; draws on popular culture; challenges students to ask difficult questions; ties concepts to students’ own lives; and incorporates an intersectional approach. Designed to simultaneously engage and instruct, the book is ideally suited for classroom use.CONTENTS:
