Crime Victimization: A Comprehensive Overview provides students with a broad picture of the work done to draw attention to crime victims and the overall effects of victimization, including victim needs for recovery from crime. This text explores victimization at the street crime level, but also delves into less commonly discussed types of victimization including state and corporate crime, hate crime, cybercrime, environmental crime, and workplace violence.
This text addresses the full spectrum of victimization from ''victimless'' crimes to repeat victimizations and provides students with an understanding of why victimization occurs, how victims deal with the aftereffects, what services are available to victims, and how professionals in the criminal justice, medical, religious, and therapeutic fields can both help and hinder victims journeys toward recovery. The evolution of the victims' rights movement, along with the development of national victim service organizations, important pieces of legislation, and international victimological associations are presented to provide students with an idea of the work that practitioners, activists, and researchers have done to both improve services to and enhance our understanding of crime victims overall.
Crime Victimization provides a global understanding of victimization to highlight the impact of the crime phenomenon on the overall human condition. Additionally, students are introduced to burgeoning developments in the victim services field along with profiles of victimologists, victims' rights activities, and victim service providers to help them identify the impact they can have on the field of victimology and on individual crime victims in their chosen fields.
