Sex Offenders, Stigma, and Social Control Paperback / softback
Part of the Critical Issues in Crime and Society series
In Sex Offenders, Stigma, and Social Control, Diana Rickard provides the reader with an in-depth view of six sex offenders, exploring how they manage to cope with their highly stigmatized role as social outcasts.
The book explores how these individuals construct their sense of self.
By placing their stories within the context of the current culture of mass incarceration and zero-tolerance, Rickard provides a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between public policy and lived experience.
