“One of its key strengths is its capacity to cover much ground whilst simultaneously remaining unified by a concern to demonstrate the global context of harm against women. Achieving such a diverse collection of chapters within a coherent framework is often woefully lacking in such edited collections and its editors...should be commended for such an achievement.” – Marisa Silvestri,
The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice, Volume 51, No.5
“...admirably adds to our understanding in global criminology, specifically with a focus on the position of women...What is probably most remarkable about this collection, apart from its various chapters' substantive merits, is that it reads truly as the work of a collective.” – Mathieu Deflem,
The Law & Politics Book Review, Vol.19, No.8
“[a] timely and important book … that deal[s] with what are, or should be, concerns for criminology.
It is critical, theoretically driven, international in scope and politically engaged.
A wonderful, thought-provoking collection of essays.” – Julie Stubbs,
British Journal of Criminology, Volume 50, No. 2
“This thought-provoking collection … provides a critical exploration of various expressions of women's victimization in the context of globalization, setting the stage for an emergent feminist global criminology.
The contributions are presents in a manner that is accessible for audiences from a variety of disciplines and perspectives.
This collection is the first to provide a review of harms and expressions of violence against women in the context of globalization. It's value lies in the broad interpretation of violence against women, which incorporates not only physical by also social, economic, political and spiritual harm.” – Edna Erez,
Law and Society Review, Volume 44, Issue 2
“This vibrant collection as a whole shows how the tension between the local and the global can be navigated through appreciating, as Walklate highlights, the lessons of standpoint feminism to knowledge construction, and an acknowledgment of the diversity of women's lives (Cain and Howe 2008: 212-13). It makes a strong case for pushing the boundaries of criminology to encompass an analytic of social harm to reveal those cases of 'censure without sanction' (Cain and Howe 2008: 17).” – Louise Boon-Kuo,
