Alarid (sociology/criminal justice, U. of Missouri-Kansas City) and Cromwell (criminal justice, Wichita State University) have assembled 22 ethnographic studies in this anthology for students of criminology or sociology. The contributing scholars interviewed female offenders using ethnographic and feminist research methods, and these interviews are abundantly quoted in the essays but not transcribed. Each section has an introduction, followed by four chapters and discussion questions. Larger sections cover the topics of victimization and criminalization; criminal behavior in relation to the family; crime in groups, including gangs and ethnicities; economic factors, such as prostitution and homelessness; and crime as a rational choice. There is no index. Annotation 2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
