Reviews

"[This book] clearly locates itself within the field of cultural criminology and makes a distinctive and fresh contribution to the field. Given the authors' trans-disciplinary approach, researchers and students of working in gender, media and film studies will also find a host of important insights here." - British Journal of Criminology
