Challenging the common masculinist character of criminological research, James W. Messerschmidt develops an elaborate scrutiny of the gender roles that, along with class and race, influence the occurrence and types of crimes in our society.

His critique of deficiencies in criminological and sex-role theories is excellent, and I commend it as an accessible introduction to the issues.--Kathleen Daly "American Journal of Sociology "
