A very thorough gendered analysis of crime, responses to crime and criminal victimisation. 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

Gender, Crime and Victimisation offers a comprehensive examination of how gender patterns in offending and victimisation 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, this important new 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 victimisation.

The book's nine chapters encompass an historical and contemporary analysis of the most salient developments arising from feminist and masculinist theorising. Gender, Crime and Victimisation provides a stimulating and topical overview that will appeal to undergraduates, postgraduates, academics and researchers.

'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.'

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.
