about this item

Named 2016 Living Legend by the American Academy of Nursing, Ann Wolbert Burgess has dedicated her career to the study of victims, offenders, and the impact of crime on society. Dr. Burgess continues to bring her years of research and real-world experience working with victims, offenders, FBI, and law enforcement from the courtroom to the classroom in this updated third edition of Victimology: Theories and Applications. This authoritative text provides an overview of issues related to a variety of victims types, such as children, the elderly, women, individuals and groups of a specific race or religion, and victims of internet crime. Within the context of each victim type, Dr. Burgess discusses not only the impact of the crime on the victim, but also covers the motivation of the perpetrator, strategies for intervention, laws that define the nature of the crime, and the legal attempts to punish offenders. Whether a student is considering a career in the criminal justice system, health care, first responder services, social work, or academia, this applied text will guide them toward a deeper understanding of the multifaceted world of victimology and prepare them to better serve victims of crime.
