"This sixth edition of a text on the history and current state of the field of victimology offers a new chapter on property victimization and an expanded chapter on personal victimization. The text explores the role of victimology in today's criminal justice system, examines consequences of victimization and various remedies available for victims, and analyzes policy decisions. Some areas examined are measuring criminal victimization, restorative justice, types of restitution and compensation, sexual battery and intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, and victimization at work and school. Learning features include chapter objectives, key terms, and a list of websites."--Reference and Research Book News
