"Women are committing more crimes - and more violent ones - than ever before. And this crime wave is growing at an alarming rate. In this landmark in the study of female crime, Freda Adler overcomes a decade of resistance from traditional theorists, police chiefs, judges, and probation officers to take account of new social facts. based on several years of original research, this is a total reassessment of the scope, depth, and implications of female crime; it shows that thousands of women are stepping across the imaginary boundary line that once separated crimes into 'masculine' and 'feminine' categories. Dr. Adler explains how female assertiveness has led women to break out of the traditional limits of prostitution and shoplifting into the major leagues of crime, including crimes of violence, which are for women increasing at rates six and seven times as great as those for men ..."

The legacy of anomie theory by Freda Adler( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributors to this volume examine the development of the anomie-and-opportunity-structure paradigm and its significance to criminology. Collectively, they assess the theory's continuing usefulness, explain the relevance of Merton's concept of goals/means disparity as a psychological mechanism in the explanation of delinquency, and compare strain theory with social control theory. Anomie is used to explain white-collar crime and to explore the symbiotic relationship between Chinese gangs and adult criminal organizations within the cultural, economic, and political context of the American-Chinese community
