"I strongly recommend this book. Haney's account is rich with ethnographic detail that brings life to abstract debates about mode of governance and the state." American Journal Of Sociology / AJS "Enriched with vivid images and details on incarcerated women's lives, this book reminds us of incarcerated women's social realities." -- Olivera Simic Feminist Review "Insightful... This book will appeal to persons with an interest in women's studies." -- Jack E. Call Law & Politics Book Review "Offending women makes excellent use of ethnographic material and close observation to build a compelling analysis of two state institutions." British Jrnl Of Sociology
