1 Citation (SciVal)


This book presents a unique series of graphic narratives which offer a new way to recount the lived experiences and life stories of women involved in transnational organised crime groups, from victims to perpetrators. Based on ethnographic interviews, and police files, academic Felia Allum and artist Anna Mitchell together seek to tell individual stories while also contributing to broader discourses about crime, power relations and victimhood. The four graphic stories cover cutting-edge issues in crime including County lines and British gangs, Nigerian syndicates, Italian Mafias, and Albanian drug gangs, and all stories effectively and forcefully depict the voices of those who are often voiceless and hidden in a more complex social and criminal phenomenon. This book is suitable for students and scholars in criminology, sociology, gender studies and comics studies, as well as for the general reader.
