This breakthrough work provides an organizing structure for the history and current state of the field of victimology, and outlines the reasons compelling a separate focus on crime victims. Highly readable, Victimology explores the role of victimology in today’s criminal justice system, examining the consequences of victimization and the various remedies now available for victims. In addition to adding the latest developments in victimology, the authors have included a new chapter on property victimization, and have enhanced and expanded the chapter on personal victimization. The text is supplemented by learning tools including chapter-by-chapter learning objectives, key terms, illustrative figures and tables, and a listing of related Internet sites.
