For courses in Victimology, Crime Victimization, Criminology and Introduction to Criminal Justice.

The Victims of Crime provides indispensable information on all aspects of crime victimization, victims’ rights, and victims’ services. Organized in an easy-to-follow, four-part format, it provides a look at important events in the field, up-to-date statistical victimization data, and a theoretical understanding of how and why individuals become victims of crime. Taking a systems approach, it devotes extensive coverage to the crime victim’s interaction with the criminal justice system and includes an entire chapter on economic victimizations.
