Companion to Crime, Harm and Victimisation (Hardcover)
about this item
Succinct, accessible, and comprehensive, this book is the first to provide definitions and explanations of key terms and concepts from the expanding field of crime, harm, and victimization. Contributions from a wide range of experts investigate theories, ideas, and case studies relating to victims of conventional crime and victims outside the remit of criminal law. The book explores both the domestic and international nature, extent, and measurement of crime and harm as well as responses to victims and victimization in connection with conventional, corporate, and state crimes and harms. As part of Policy’s Companion series, entries are presented in a user-friendly, quick-reference A-Z format that clearly notes related sections and provides suggestions for further reading.
