Routledge Revivals

  1. Pat Rogers discusses the reissuing of three of his books

    With three of his titles about to be reissued through the Routledge Revials program, Pat Rogers discusses how times have changed since their first publication.

  2. New in Paperback - Women, Crime and Criminology (Routledge Revivals)

    First published in 1977, Women, Crime and Criminology presents a feminist critique of classical and contemporary theories of female criminality. It addresses the issue that criminology literature has, throughout history, been predominantly male-oriented, always treating female criminality as marginal to the ‘proper’ study of crime in society. Carol Smart explores a new direction in criminology, and the sociology of deviance, by investigating female crime from a committed feminist position. Now available to buy as an ebook for the first time.
