I've been teaching anthropology, criminal justice and ethnic and gender studies for over 20 years. This text by van Wormer and Bartollas has helped me introduce students in criminal justice courses to a history of social change movements and paradigm shifts in the social sciences that don't often get coverage in any other courses. It has the historical context, chronology of changes in the laws and system, the overview and advocacy for victims who sometimes also become offenders, and the vocabulary and concepts to make for a powerful teaching tool. It also has end of chapter discussion questions and terms that help the students navigate the major points. There are boxed case studies and in-depth examples. I recommend this book to anyone working in social justice, criminal justice and race/class and gender studies. The text ends with an insightful chapter on shifts and new roles for women in power in the justice system and what women and men should be prepared for in the workforce. Full of helpful references. Excellent and I look forward to using the upcoming edition!

i bought this book, don't remember if i bought it used or new... but i got it in good time everything's good except it had a big like mug stain on the back. other than that everything was good.

This text is well written and contains excellent information. Unfortunately, rather than sticking to the facts, the reader is subject to feminist philosophical rantings that often obscure the pertinent information. I would have preferred a more well rounded and balanced approach allowing the student the respect to make their own decisions regarding viewpoint, rather than a strictly feminist approach. This subject matter is too important to leave in the hands of agenda driven authors who leave no room for any other school of thought. I was sorely disappointed but not surprised by this text.

If there is a book of which it could be said, "It covers it all" this is the one. It covers virtually everything involving women and the Criminal Justice system. Many of the topics are concerning women who have been subjected to various types of abuse including rape. But it makes a full swing around to emcompass women who work as law enforcement personnel and even those whose jobs are deeply seated within the field of criminal justice. I'd say it's a very eye opening text with tons of information! It's a good read!

Van Wormer and Bartollas' book provides a very broad discussion of all facets of women in the criminal justice system, such as rape, spouse abuse, women in prison, women in law enforcement, and women in the legal profession. Because of its broad range of information, it provides a strong book for courses in criminal justice programs involving women. It also provides a strong reader for lay persons who are just interested in knowing the issues involving women and the criminal justice system. In the College of Social Work at Ohio State University, I teach a course entitled social work practice in corrections and would adopt this book as a second book for my course to provide students with broad perspective of women issues in criminal justice.
The book was repetitive in many cases. How many times can it be stated that lack of income can be the source of delinquent behavior such as doing drugs and participating in criminal activities? The book focused more on the lower class than giving more of a comparison on delinquency between the lower, middle, and upper class. Maybe I missed something but I did not finish this book with a greater understanding of women in the criminal justice system as victims, offenders, or professionals. I felt like I was reading more statements given about women from the 1970s- 90s than the present. If the authors wanted to state what was going on in those times they should have followed up with what is currently happening with those issues that were cited over 30 yrs prior. Women were made to sound mentally and emotionally slow and weak and very insignificant to society. I was very disappointed that this book is being used as a text book for my class. Makes me wonder do instructors read these books before making their students read them. If anything after reading this book it makes me want to go out on my own and research the plight of women as criminals, victims, and professionals.
