This textbook analyzes the causes, dynamics, and nature of male crime and aggression. Written for both undergraduate and graduate level students, this textbook takes a multidisciplinary approach to male criminality. The study of crime and criminals has typically either focused specifically on female deviance or has offered a general analysis of crime that presumes, by and large, a male offender. This textbook explicitly analyzes male criminality, rather than implicitly studying it through a general analysis of crime. The relationship between male aggression and masculinity is explored, as is the role of testosterone and other biological factors that may play a role in male crime and violence. The textbook is divided into seven parts. Part 1 examines the biological, psychological, sociological, and cultural and masculinity theories that attempt to explain male aggression, crime, and violence. Part 2 concentrates on the dynamics of male crime and violence. Gender differences in criminal behavior are examined, as well as racial and ethnic differences in male crime. The arrest patterns and the characteristics of male inmates in adult and juvenile correctional facilities are also explored. Part 3 focuses on male crime of violence; chapters are devoted to examinations of homicide, forcible rape, domestic violence, stalking, hate crimes, workplace violence, and terrorism. Part 4 explores property offenses, such as robbery, motor vehicle theft, and carjacking. Part 5 examines male sex offenses and includes analyses of incest, child sexual abuse, prostitution-related crimes, and explores the relationship between pornography and male violence. Part 6 looks at juvenile male crime and delinquency, with a focus on youth gangs and school crime and violence. Part 7 outlines Federal legislation designed to combat criminal and violent behavior, including the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, the Violence Against Women Act of 2000, and the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, amended in 1978. The textbook is appropriate for coursework in criminal justice, criminology, sociology, psychology, law enforcement, and other related areas of study.

This text is the definitive work on media and criminal justice. Its scholarship is impeccable, its style direct and approachable, and its format engaging and complete with visual examples and a collection of lighter sidebar material to complement the main discussions. With the rise of media's role in reporting crime and using crime as entertainment, the importance of the interplay between the mass media news and entertainment systems and the criminal justice system may be greater today than ever before. Surette comprehensively explores this interplay and emphasizes the fact that people use knowledge obtained from the media to build a picture of the world and then proceed to base their actions on this constructed image.

Presented in this book are current practices within policing and juvenile justice (focusing on gangs), which utilize the community-policing model. By looking at specific strategies and their efficacy, the authors attempt to combat a major perceived problem with community policing; that the methodology of community policing can be subjective and nebulous, using ill-defined and misinterpreted practices. This book shows what is working for agencies across the country and how these "best practices" can be employed. Includes a focus on Boston as a model for gang policing strategies, other chapters are set in different regions of the United States.

Die Geschichte der Menschheit ist zugleich und vor allem eine Geschichte der männlichen Macht, die vor Jahrtausenden mit den ersten Schritten zur Beherrschung der Natur einsetzte und sich heute angesichts der apokalyptischen Aura am Horizont der abendländischen Zivilisation einem verderblichen Ende zu nähern scheint. Vor diesem Hintergrund untersucht Marilyn French in ihrem umfassenden und mit reichhaltigem Quellenmaterial versehenen Werk die Ursprünge jener Macht und den Prozeß ihrer Ausweitung. Sie fragt nach ihren Auswirkungen auf die Lebensbedingungen von Mann und Frau in unterschiedlichen Kulturen und Epochen und forscht nach ihrem Niederschlag in exemplarischen Gesellschaftsbereichen: Theologie, politische Theorie, Rechtswesen, Medizin, Wirtschafts- und Erziehungswesen. Die Befunde addieren sich nicht nur zu einer allgemeingültigen Standortbestimmung der Frau und der feministischen Bewegung, sondern liefern den Beweis dafür, daß das Patriarchat weder die natürliche noch die unvermeidliche Organisationsform der menschlichen Gesellschaft darstellt. In ihrer Analyse entlarvt Marilyn French den kritischen Zustand der abendländischen Zivilisation als Folge der Zerstörung unserer moralischen Wertordnung durch die patriarchalische Machtgier. Sie weist zwingend nach, daß wir auf den Totalitarismus oder auf den Weltuntergang zusteuern, falls wir uns nicht eine Vision der menschlichen Zukunft zu eigen machen, die auf elementaren humanen Werten beruht: auf Werten, die in der Vergangenheit immer verächtlich als «weiblich» abgetan worden sind.

IT'S ABOUT TIME provides a compelling argument, based on extensive research, illustrating how the U.S. attempts to lower crime by using our correctional system as the primary solution. The book includes personal accounts from prisoners to illustrate the brutal aspects of prison life and the intent of the U.S. to create a "prison industrial complex." This book often exposes students for the first time to varying points of view of the corrections system. The authors, one of whom served 10 years in prison and is now a noted criminologist in the field, present the material in a powerful but compassionate manner. The book's strong research base and accessible style make it a popular choice for a wide variety of courses.
