The Female Offender: A Selected Bibliography.
Horton, Davis M., Comp.; Kravitz, Marjorie, Comp.
Three themes run through this collection of citations which represent a small fraction of literature on the adult female offender. One is the ideology, implications, and impact of criminological theory to the study of female crime and criminality. A second theme treats the legal and procedural mechanics of justice administration. The final theme reflects the management, discipline, and discharge of convicted female offenders. The reader can obtain a general understanding of the history, practices, issues and trends in the study of adult female offenders, and be able to make a discriminative selection of entries for further study. The bibliography focusses on literature from 1965 through 1978 and is arranged alphabetically by author. Classics are excluded. Documents were selected from the data base of the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. (BEF)
