Crime as Structured Action: Gender, Race, Class, and Crime in the Making

Front Cover
SAGE, Jan 4, 1997 - Social Science - 134 pages

The author of this volume skillfully demonstrates that a vital component to understanding crime is to be able to view it as more than a single activity.

James W. Messerschmidt argues that crime operates subtly through a complex series of gender, race and class practices and these interwoven elements must be seen as part of all social existence, not viewed independently.
