Learn about victimology from a true classic text in the field. CRIME VICTIMS: AN INTRODUCTION TO VICTIMOLOGY, Tenth Edition offers the most comprehensive and balanced exploration of victimology available today. The author examines the victims' plight, carefully placing statistics from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report and Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey in context. At the same time, he "humanizes" victims' stories through compelling case studies. The text systematically investigates how victims are currently handled by the criminal justice system, analyzes the goals of the victims' rights movement, and discusses what the future is likely to hold. In this up-to-date edition, you'll read about the practical issues facing victims and learn about "survivorology" and "bystanderology." You'll also gain insight into the seriousness of intimate partner violence, child abuse, sexual assaults in the U.S. military, acquaintance rapes on college campuses, shootings on campuses, whether arming for self-protection is an effective strategy, and other high-profile issues.
  • This edition presents the very latest data about victimization and includes high profile cases that brought about criminal justice reforms. These include bystander intervention that led to tragedy, a deadly incident of road rage, identity theft suffered by a prominent figure, survivors seeking reconciliation with the offender, persons using a gun to save their own lives, and the motor vehicle theft of a truck in the president's entourage.

  • Learn about victimology from a true classic text in the field. CRIME VICTIMS: AN INTRODUCTION TO VICTIMOLOGY, Tenth Edition offers the most comprehensive and balanced exploration of victimology available today. The author examines the victims' plight, carefully placing statistics from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report and Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey in context. At the same time, he "humanizes" victims' stories through compelling case studies. The text systematically investigates how victims are currently handled by the criminal justice system, analyzes the goals of the victims' rights movement, and discusses what the future is likely to hold. In this up-to-date edition, you'll read about the practical issues facing victims and learn about "survivorology" and "bystanderology." You'll also gain insight into the seriousness of intimate partner violence, child abuse, sexual assaults in the U.S. military, acquaintance rapes on college campuses, shootings on campuses, whether arming for self-protection is an effective strategy, and other high-profile issues.
