However, very little is known about female criminality in contemporary China. Through an empirical inquiry into three categories of offending women, this book explores the socioeconomic conditions that facilitate womens pathways into crime, and examines the interplay between gender, class, rapid social changes and female law-breaking in neoliberal China.The stories of the female offenders examined in this book challenge the stereotypical depiction of female offenders in the Chinese language literature as twisted, morally rotten, shameless and evil.

The book makes a unique contribution to the literature on neoliberalism and feminist criminology and will be essential reading for scholars working on issues of gender and crime, particularly in a Chinese context.
