For Issues in Criminal Justice, Victimology, Criminology and Special Topics in Criminal Justice courses. Written to raise awareness about the often forgotten victims of crime, this text gives a voice to the victims in society today. Designed to give students a broader perspective about the experience of victims, this volume provides information on a wide variety of crimes within their individual contexts and demonstrates to students some of the range of experiences that crime victims are forced to deal with. It addresses victims' support policies and programs and provides a realistic approach to understanding the process of victimization and the broad range of coping mechanisms that victims employ to deal with their particular experience.
