This year more than 20 million Americans will become victims of crime. Very few will get the help they need to get their lives back on track. Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime presents a new approach, designed to help victims rebuild their lives now being piloted from Vermont to California by police chiefs, prosecutors, corrections officials, victim advocates and community leaders.
Drawing on more than 30 years of criminal justice experience, including almost 8 years as executive director of the National Center for Victims of Crime, author Susan Herman explains why justice for all requires more than holding offenders accountable it means addressing victims three basic needs: to be safe, to recover from the trauma of the crime, and regain control of their lives.
With guiding principles and practical examples of how to respond to victims of any kind of crime, Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime provides a road-map for everyone who wants to pursue this new vision of justice.

About the Author:

Susan Herman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Pace University. From 1997 to 2004, she served as the Executive Director of the National Center for Victims of Crime, the nation's leading resource and advocacy organization for crime victims. With more than 25 years of leadership experience in government, criminal justice, and social services, Ms. Herman is an internationally recognized spokesperson for victims of crime and a new vision of justice for victims, parallel justice.

Ms. Herman is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and the Antioch School of Law.

Review:

In this important book Herman not only outlines why parallel obligations--to victims and offenders--are necessary, she offers a theory of how this might work, with concrete suggestions for where we can start today, in our own communities. --Howard Zehr, Professor of Restorative Justice, Eastern Mennonite University, author of Changing Lenses, and The Little Book of Restorative Justice

Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime is a critically cogent explanation of how we fail victims of crime in this country, and an elegantly lucid prescription for how to make progress in delivering justice to them. --Tracey Meares, Deputy Dean and Walter Hale Hamilton Professor, Yale Law School

Susan Herman's quietly passionate manifesto serves to show even those of us committed to preventing victimization that we neglect actual victims, both in theory and in practice. Parallel Justice offers both a conceptual framework and immediate, practical steps toward redressing crime's awful impact on individuals, families, and communities. --David Kennedy, Director, Center for Crime Prevention and Control, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
