about this item

In this textbook, the author surveys issues related to victimology, emphasizing data from North America, and addressing measurement, theories, victims’ rights and services, justice systems, and different types of victims, including the incidence of types of victimization, the impact of the crime on victims, the motivations of the perpetrators, strategies for intervention, laws on the nature of the crime, and legal attempts to punish offenders and protect victims and society. This edition has new chapters on social media victims and forensic victimology, including new case studies on Michelle Carter and Riley Fox; a new full-color design with updated photos, figures, and tables; new discussion of victims and offenders; updated chapter opening cases; recent statistics and case studies; and current topics like human trafficking, bullying, victims of terrorism and cybercrime, property crimes, corporate crimes, workplace violence, racial profiling, and disproportionate penalties. It expands the traditional academic concepts and theories of victimology to include an applied component for students who will assess or treat victims or offenders.
