Review:


"Introduction to Victimology presents a very different approach to the study of victimology. I believe that it is really the first book to provide a true overview, or survey of, the discipline."--Kate Fox, Arizona State University


"Introduction to Victimology is written by leading experts, is based on theory and empirical research, and covers all of the key topics related to victimization."--Kevin Beaver, Florida State University
