"An important, well-conceived, and exceptionally well-timed book. Highly recommended." - Bertell Ollman, New York University
"Flavin set out to examine the policing of women's reproduction in various contexts, and she succeeds in doing so with a text that is exceptionally well researched and written in a style that is both readable and eloquent. This book would make a fine addition to a course dedicated to social-justice issues in women's lives."-Feminist Formations,
"Illuminates the dark corners of a public polity that holds pregnant women accountable for all aspects and outcomes of their reproduction without offering the compassion, education, or control necessary to produce happy endings--or beginnings."
-Jennifer Reich, author of "Fixing Families: Parents, Power, and the Child Welfare System"
"At last, a book that recognizes that reproductive rights encompass more than abortion rights. Our Bodies, Our Crimes covers all of the essential and highly controversial topics regarding the intersection of reproductive rights and criminal justice."
-Claire M. Renzetti, co-author of "Women, Men, and Society"
"Our Bodies, Our Crimes is a beautifully written and well researched book that makes an original and important contribution to the emerging social science literature on reproductive politics. I strongly recommend it."
-Carole Joffe, author of "Doctors of Conscience: The Struggle to Provide Abortion before and after Roe v Wade"
"Our Bodies, Our Crimes is one of the most compelling books I've read in recent years. Flavin's writing is exquisite and her documentation is careful and thorough. Whether informing the reader about reproductive freedom, battered women, or incarcerated women, she does so even-handedly and ably captures the complexities and depravities that real women and girls encounter every day in this country. Flavin draws on high profile cases, unknown cases, laws, policies, history, criminology research and much more to explain how her cases are decided by race, gender, class, and sexuality. Her book will help students, legal professionals, gender and legal scholars, and lay people to understand the common themes and threads of violence against women and girls and the sexism, racism, and classism in labeling girls and women deviant and criminals."
-Joanne Belknap, author of "The Invisible Woman: Gender, Crime, and Justice"
"A brilliant piece of writing, easily accessible, and which really did change the world" Daily Mail "Contemporary, ironic, cool, biting writing style" Observer "Irreverent, mocking, sarcastic, witty, savage, provocative and with a driving, irresistible argument" Independent "As a force for change, its influence has been surpassed only by the Bible. As a piece of writing, it is a masterpiece" Guardian "A short work, written in punchy, accessible style. It can be read in an hour." Sunday Mirror
