Overview

Women and Crime: The Essentials / Edition 1

This student-friendly text provides a comprehensive and unique view into the world of women interacting with the criminal justice system. Authors Stacy L. Mallicoat and Connie explore key topics on women as victims, offenders, and criminal justice workers as they interact with various areas in criminal justice. They investigate relevant subjects that are not found in many traditional texts, including women who work as victim advocates, and international issues of crime and justice for women. They highlight important discussions such as rape in the military or the Girls Scouts Beyond Bars program, and offer case studies on well-known offenders such as Mary Kay Letourneau and Andrea Yates. The text also provides a unique vignette on the story of Karla and Diana, two childhood friends whose lives take a dramatic turn throughout different aspects of the criminal justice system. This vignette, a composite of many subjects and case studies from the authors' research and field experiences, highlights many of the major concepts for each chapter.

Be careful if you order this book rental. Ordered it on 1/13, with expedited shipping so it would be delivered on 1/19. On 1/18, it still had not yet been shipped so I called customer service only to be told it was on back order and they had no idea when it would be shipped!!! Would have been nice to have been contacted and told that instead of having to follow up to find that out, when it still was showing an expected delivery date of 1/19.
