Victimology, tenth edition, covers the scope of crime victims suffering in the US, offering a history of victims and the measurement of victimization, an explanation of the victims role in the criminal justice process, and a recounting of the issues crime victims face as a result of crime and involvement in the criminal justice process. Doerner and Lab, both well-regarded scholars, write compellingly about how the current criminals justice system can be transformed into a victims justice system. Theory is woven together with the description of each topic, and specific examples illustrate each point. The book goes on to address the full impact of victimization, and a final section details specific types of victimization, ranging from violent crimes, including child and elder abuse, to property crime, to crime in the school and in the workplace. The authors explain how obstacles hinder the pursuit of justice, and provide significant policy and programming suggestions to render the system more victim-friendly. Appropriate for undergraduate as well asearly graduate students in Victimology courses in Criminology, Criminal Justice, Sociology, and Justice Studies programs, this book offers instructors aides with test bank and PowerPoint lecture slides as well as a companion site with student resources.
