The Victims of Crime provides indispensable information on all aspects of crime victimization, victims’ rights, and victims’ services. Organized in an easy-to-follow, four-part format, it provides a look at important events in the field, up-to-date statistical victimization data, and a theoretical understanding of how and why individuals become victims of crime. Taking a systems approach, it devotes extensive coverage to the crime victim’s interaction with the criminal justice system and includes an entire chapter on economic victimizations.
