""Why didn't she resist?"" ""Why is he telling us only now?"" ""Why can't she move on?"" Unpacking the questions that cast victims as deviants, Jennifer Dunn critically examines why we stigmatise survivors of rape, battering, incest, and clergy abuse-and how they reclaim their identities. Dunn explores the shifting perceptions over time of victims as blameworthy, blameless, pathetic, or heroic figures. She also links those images to their real-world consequences, demonstrating that they dominate the ways in which people think about intimate violence and individual responsibility. Her analysis cuts to the core of fundamental issues at the centre of debates about crime and deviance, victimisation, and social problems.

About the Author:

Jennifer L. Dunn, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.

Review:

"Subtle, yet accessible and a pleasure to read. Dunn gives us a sophisticated new framework for thinking about victims of violence and fresh insight into why our larger culture calls their claims - and the victims' own morality - into question." - Joel Best, University of Delaware "An important book.... Dunn addresses significant practical questions that are also theoretically intriguing in this empirical exploration of the cultural category of 'victim.'" - Donileen Loseke, University of South Florida"
