Crime as Structured Action: Doing Masculinities, Race, Class, Sexuality, and Crime
The groundbreaking Crime as Structured Action demonstrates that to understand crime, we must understand how crime operates through a complex series of gender, race, sexual, and class practices. In the second edition of this powerful book, Messerschmidt updates both structured action theory as well as several of the original case studies, and he includes a new case study that further brings structured action theory to life. This edition also features expanded discussions of whiteness and sexuality and their relationships to crime.
