Criminology at the Crossroads: Feminist Readings in Crime and Justice is an edited collection of accessible articles on gender, crime, and justice. It contains key works in criminology and law by well-known feminist scholars including Carol Smart, Kristin Bumiller, Hilary Allen, Meda Chesney-Lind, Kathleen Ferraro, Laureen Snider, and Regina Austin. The 14 selections, chosen for their empirical focus and sophisticated modes of interpretation, raise difficult, unresolved problems for feminist work in criminology. Themes include the construction of women in feminist, legal, and criminological discourses; the blurred boundaries of victimization and criminalization; masculinities and violence; and the crossroads and intersections of class-race-gender, politics, and justice. Daly and Mahers introductory essay offers a brief overview of the field, past and present, and analyzes the shifts that occurred in feminist thinking between the 1970s and the 1990s. The editors suggest that feminists need to move beyond the familiar critiques of androcentrism in the field. They propose that instead of asking Where are the women? or Where is sex/gender in criminology?, feminists should say Here are the women (and men) and Here is sex/gender in criminal law, lawbreaking, and state responses to harm. While acknowledging the current vitality and energy of feminist scholarship, Daly and Maher also suggest that feminists in criminology stand at the crossroads of discourse and realism and of academic and activist knowledge. Criminology at the Crossroads: Feminist Readings in Crime and Justice will challenge and provoke students, making it an essential text not only for graduates and advanced undergraduates in criminology, law, and the social sciences, but also for scholars interested in becoming more familiar with feminist work.

Research on gender, sex, and crime today remains focused on topics that have been a mainstay of the field for several decades, but it has also recently expanded to include studies from a variety of disciplines, a growing number of countries, and on a wider range of crimes. The Oxford Handbook of Gender, Sex, and Crime reflects this growing diversity and provides authoritative overviews of current research and theory on how gender and sex shape crime and criminal justice responses to it. The editors, Rosemary Gartner and Bill McCarthy, have assembled a diverse cast of criminologists, historians, legal scholars, psychologists, and sociologists from a number of countries to discuss key concepts and debates central to the field. The Handbook includes examinations of the historical and contemporary patterns of women's and men's involvement in crime; as well as biological, psychological, and social science perspectives on gender, sex, and criminal activity. Several essays discuss the ways in which sex and gender influence legal and popular reactions to crime. An important theme throughout The Handbook is the intersection of sex and gender with ethnicity, class, age, peer groups, and community as influences on crime and justice. Individual chapters investigate both conventional topics - such as domestic abuse and sexual violence - and topics that have only recently drawn the attention of scholars - such as human trafficking, honor killing, gender violence during war, state rape, and genocide. The Oxford Handbook of Gender, Sex, and Crime offers an unparalleled and comprehensive view of the connections among gender, sex, and crime in the United States and in many other countries. Its insights illuminate both traditional areas of study in the field and pathways for developing cutting-edge research questions.

This collection re-imagines the field of criminology with insights gleaned from feminist theory. Works included here illustrate that gender is a key organizing principle of social life. This means that men and women have gender, that patriarchy as well as gender must be theorized, and that other systems of oppression such as race and class must also be studied to fully understand the crime problem and the criminal justice system. Finally, the articles collected here exemplify the feminist concern for thinking consciously about how and why we do our research with the crucial goal of producing knowledge that will promote social justice.

Whereas the preceding edition, published in 1989, viewed social class as the central focus of radical criminology, over the past decade the scope of radical criminology has expanded to include race, gender, culture, history, post-modernism and left-realism, among other movements.

This is a criminology text that is explicitly sociological in orientation and is designed to help students cultivate a sociological imagination to guide their thinking about crime and criminal justice. The book takes a critical approach and places questions of social inequality and power at the center of criminological inquiry. It views class, race/ethnicity, and gender as pivotal organizing principles of social life - prisms through which we come to know ourselves and our social world and as central mechanisms by which social relationships are patterned.
