CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Victimology is an important area of study in criminology as an academic
subject, but is also taken seriously by governments and agencies in their
assessment of criminal behaviour and their policies on crime. Victimology
addresses questions such as: Why are certain people or groups of people victims
of crime? Why do some crimes go unreported? Why do victims respond in the way
that they do? What can the state do to stop certain groups becoming victims?
How can victims be supported following a crime? This reader brings together
some of the classic readings in criminology, dating back to the origins of
victimology as a subject during the 1940s. It also includes more recent
articles which examine newer issues in victimology such as corporate crime,
state crime and religious effects and implications on the subject. The book
also explores the ongoing development of policy and theories of victimology.
Victims and Victimisation: A Reader brings together, for the first time,
these classic and contemporary readings in criminology. It also includes an
editorial introduction to the volume and an introduction to each thematic
section. It provides key reading for students of criminology, law and sociology.
