Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

There has been a great deal of research on criminal victimization, legislation supporting victims and victim programmes and services, but no book has taken recent stock of these advances. Victims of Crime provides a state of the art review of many facets of criminal victimization and many of the efforts that have been made to ameliorate the pain and loss of crime victims. It is a book which will be of great interest to academics and students of the criminal justice system and anyone involved in the help and support of crime victims.
