About the Author:

Andrew Karmen has been a professor in the Sociology Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice since 1978. He has taught courses on a wide range of subjects including general sociology, criminal justice, criminology, crime and justice in New York City, drug abuse, delinquency, social problems, race relations, research methods, statistics, and victimology. He has previously served as the coordinator of both the criminology and criminal justice undergraduate majors, the co-director of the master's program in criminal justice, and as a member of the doctoral faculty. Dr. Karmen has written journal articles and chapters in books on a number of subjects, including drug abuse, police use of deadly force, auto theft, providing defense attorneys to indigents, victims' rights, the victimization of women, and predictions about the plight of crime victims in the future. His investigation of why crime rates rise and fall, NEW YORK MURDER MYSTERY: THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE CRIME CRASH OF THE 1990s, (NYU Press, paperback edition 2006) unearths statistical evidence that casts doubt on most of the widely held beliefs about the reasons for the dramatic improvement in public safety in New York City. In 2012, Dr. Karmen was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the World Society Of Victimology.

Review:

"I believe that this text would work well in a victimology course taught in a social work department, especially at the undergraduate level...The use of little vignettes to illustrate the text increases interest and helps develop some topics by example. It is well-documented from the point of citations...All of my favorite authors were represented, and some "classics" with older dates were included, which I consider important."

"I like the readability level of this text in terms of student discussions and comprehension. It presents a great deal of information; however, the discussions within each chapter are presented as interesting reading materials, not boring legalese citations that students find difficult to relate to."

"I like to apply concepts to reality and this text provides examples throughout the text. I like that the statistics, concepts, and comparisons between the UCR and NCVS are given throughout the chapters instead of trying to discuss all of it in one chapter."

"Interface of victims and key players in the criminal justice system is included. The writing style is clear and engaging, and the level is appropriate for undergraduate students."
