For all courses in victimology.

This student-friendly, easy-to-read text covers the entire field of victimology. Fully updated to reflect the latest trends, it reflects the field’s growing focus on the entire victim-offender relationship, while taking a global perspective on the study of victimology. The authors first introduce traditional victimology theories, the measurement of crime, and both civil and criminal processes. Next, they discuss responses to victimization, including techniques for empowering victims. They next turn to special types of victims, including the elderly, the disabled, and gay and lesbian victims. Finally, they thoroughly review the civil remedies available to crime victims.
