Abstract

Calls for a structural criminology that is distinguished by its attention to power relations and by the priority it assigns them in addressing criminological issues. Dominant criminological paradigms both imply and deny what structural criminology requires. Theories often imply that crime is a product of power relations, but methodologies commonly ignore this premise. A new focus on the relationship between gender and crime can provide a starting point in the development of a structural criminology that is also a more sociological criminology.-from Authors
