"The range and quality of this modern panorama of female criminology towers above the dusty jacketed, yellowed pages of the era it revisits. What this important volume revisits, it revitalizes and leaps exponentially beyond. Tributaries are now raging rivers, footsteps have turned into highways, and nuanced distinctions into competing camps. Current computational acrobatics can now analyze mountains of data to render empirical verdicts upon even our most cherished theoretical notions. Some will be substantiated, others rejected as we move steadily forward. Sisters in Crime Revisited honors those who fought to bring gender into criminology. It is a book that all should read."--Freda Adler, Author of Sisters in Crime "Sisters in Crime Revisited provides an opportunity to review development in gender and justice over the past four decades. No other text is written with this approach."--Dawn Beichner, Illinois State University "This book distinguishes itself from others in its ability to draw on the historical relevance and apply it to contemporary discussions."--Jennifer L. Hartman, UNC Charlotte "Sisters in Crime Revisited is a theoretical reader that celebrates the scholarship of Freda Adler and other influential scholars and includes contemporary essays centered on understanding the gender-crime relationship."--Christina Mancini, Florida Atlantic University
