Gendering Criminology provides a contemporary guide for understanding the role of gender in criminal engagement and experiences as well as reactions to these offenses among laypersons and agents of social control. The textbook provides evidence for the argument that gender socially situates people in their risks for criminal engagement, victimization, and what occurs in the aftermath of crime: arrest, the judicial process, and sentencing. Aside from investigating the role of men and women, the authors also explore the experiences of LGBTQIA+ communities involved in or working within the criminal-legal system. The volume provides a comprehensive account of various offenses—violent and nonviolent—and individual motivations, drives, and methods, to help students develop the skills they need to work as professionals in and around the criminal-legal system.
Key features:
  • Applies theoretical concepts to real-life applications, media bytes, and case studies
  • Includes new and timely information regarding gender and online victimization
  • Provides an overview of each topic within eleven chapters, delving into the literature in each area
  • Promotes active learning activities in each chapter to fully immerse and engage students in the material
