Masculinities, Crime and Criminology

Masculinities, Crime and Criminology

September 1998 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Masculinities, Crime and Criminology presents an innovative and timely reading of issues which are central to the questions that have arisen in criminology: Why is crime so overwhelmingly an activity conducted by men? Is crime a `masculine' phenomena?

Richard Collier explores a number of high-profile events and debates around crime, criminal justice and social (dis)order, and examines recent criminological, media and political interpretations of the relationship between men, masculinities and crime.
