Summary

A first in the field and true classic, CRIME VICTIMS: AN INTRODUCTION TO VICTIMOLOGY offers the most comprehensive and balanced exploration of victimology a vital new and, at times, controversial branch of criminology available today. The author examines the victims' plight, and is careful to place statistics from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report and Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey in context. The text systematically investigates how victims' currently are handled by the criminal justice system, analyzes the goals of the victims' rights movement, and discusses what the future is likely to hold. This seventh edition expands coverage of human trafficking, crimes on campus, identity theft, stalking, motor vehicle theft, and prisoners attacked behind bars. This student-friendly textbook will serve as a valuable home-library reference book for anyone interested in criminology and criminal justice.
