A provoking critical analysis that explores gender patterns in both offending and victimisation.

Blackwell UK

Gender, Crime and Victimisation is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book, exploring gender patterns in both offending and victimization. It offers a thorough examination of how these patterns in society 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, the 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 criminalization and social control, and their structural biases. It explores fears, anxieties, and worries about crime, as well as particular vulnerabilities to crime.



Blackwell Publishing
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.
