Drawing from the most up-to-date research, Victimology is an accessible, student-friendly text that provides students with an overview of the field of Victimology. Renowned authors and researchers Leah E. Daigle and Lisa R. Muftic expertly relay the history and development in this growing field to equip students with a strong foundation from which to build. Students will develop an understanding for why people are victimized, as well as how the Criminal Justice system and other social services interact with victims and each other. Students will also receive information about specific types of victimization, including contemporary issues such as stalking, hate crimes, human trafficking, terrorism, and more!
