Criminology, like feminism, encompasses disparate and sometimes conflicting perspectives. The history of criminology well reflects, accepts and respects them. In contrast, the tensions and conflicts within feminism are often seen as indicative of an "indisciplined" discipline. However, there is no one feminism just as there is no one criminology, and this volume presents and explores a number of different approaches to feminist criminology. The first part of this book examines theoretical considerations, the second methodologies, and the third feminist criminology in action. "Feminist Perspectives in Criminology" aims to show the potential of feminism to tranform and transgress both theory and the politics of research and action in criminology.
