    The only comments I have regard thoroughness. I would have liked to see more information regarding the huge variety of topics included. However, I realise the breadth of the topic makes it impossible to get too much information included. It is a good book for a vasy [i]basic[/i] overview of the Canadian criminal justice system and the women that are involved with it. I recommend it for those just learning about the topic.

I would have liked to see more information regarding the huge variety of topics included. However, I realise the breadth of the topic makes it impossible to get too much information included. It is a good book for a vasy [i]basic[/i] overview of the Canadian criminal justice system and the women that are involved with it. I recommend it for those just learning about the topic. It's also an easy read. The authors don't clutter up the information by trying to be too technical. Someone with no criminological background could easily understand this. Great for teaching a class on the topic (assuming you won't be addressing masculinity). It also delves a topic that most have no idea about: aboriginal justice. Since America has effectively eliminated aboriginal culture, they don't have knowledge in this particular area even with an education in criminology. So if you wish to expand your knowledge base into issues that may not be in your country (be it America or Denmark), look into that topic. It's intriguing. :)
