Gender, Crime, and Justice: Learning through Cases
Erin Katherine Krafft, Jo-Ann Della Giustina, Susan T. Krumholz
Dr. Jo-Ann Della Giustina, professor of criminal justice, has co-authored a textbook that introduces key concepts in the ways that gender relates to crime and justice.
Each chapter opens with a case study that illustrates these concepts, followed by a narrative chapter that builds on the case study to introduce essential elements.
Throughout, the book features pedagogical elements, such as learning objectives, key terms, review and
study questions, and suggestions for further learning and exploration.
In addition to the unique case study approach, this book is distinctive in its inclusion of LGBTQ experiences in crime, victimization, processing and punishment.
Gender, Crime, and Justice also addresses masculinity and the role it plays in defining offenders and victims, as well as challenges posed by the gender gap in offending.
