About this item

This second edition of the Handbook of Victims and Victimology presents a comprehensively revised and updated set of essays, bringing together internationally recognised scholars and practitioners to offer substantial research informed overviews within their specialist fields of investigation. This handbook is divided into five parts, with each part addressing a different theme within victimology:

  • Part I offers a scene-setting exploration of new developments in the field, enduring issues that remain relatively unchanged, and the gaps and traps within the contemporary victimological agenda
  • Part II examines of the complex dimensions to victim experiences as structured by gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality and intersectionality
  • Part III reflects on the problems and possibilities of formulating policy responses in the light of the changing appreciation of the nature and extent of victimhood
  • Part IV focused on the value of a comparative lens and the problems and possibilities of victim policies when seen through this lens, explored along three geographical axes: Europe, Australia and Asia
  • Part V considers other ways of thinking about who counts as a victim and what counts as victimhood, and extends the boundaries of the victimological imagination outward

Building on the success of the previous edition, this book provides an international focus on cutting-edge issues in the field of victimology. Including brand new chapters on intersectionality, child victims, sexuality, hate crime, and crimes of the powerful, this handbook is essential reading for students and academics studying victims and victimology and an essential reference tool for those working within the victim support environment.
