Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unruly Women is an important text for classroom teaching and research, because it places the ongoing crisis of women in prison in historical context. It provides a point of comparison with more recent research on this topic. The title also encourages readers to break out of the singular focus on incarcerated women to trace out the many different ways women have been—and continue to be—defined as unruly and deviant, in need of intense social control." --Geraldine Casey, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
