Criminology at the Crossroads

Feminist Readings in Crime and Justice

Edited by Kathleen Daly and Lisa Maher

Readings in Crime and Punishment

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 analyzes shifts in feminist thinking from the 1970's to the 1990's.
