I would like to reserve the right to enter a second review later. However, upon reading the first essay, I am moved to tears of laughter. A General Strain Theory theorizes that men and women have different strains. Strains are not yet defined. Families, mothers, fathers, and siblings are excluded from the definitions provided thus far.

With a lack of cultural context the authors, Lisa Brody and Robert Agnew, state "Taken as a whole, these data suggest that GST cannot explain the higher rate of male crime by simply arguing that males experience more strain. Females experience as much if not more strain than males."

You may see where this is going. The not so common term, misandry, comes to mind.

However, I am hopeful that this first essay is not indicative of the political strain expressed thus far. Of the buried allusions to works by other authors that are not explained or even hinted at as to what their content may be, I hope that the remaining essays shed some light on the actual thought processes (maybe some real life experiences would help) of the individuals who are writing this tome.

I bought this book for a class in college. It was good. Had a lot of useful information for the class.
