Book Giveaway - Victims, Crime and Society

Victims, Crime & Society cover imageThis month we have five copies of Victims, Crime and Society (Second Edition) by Pamela Davies, Peter Francis and Chris Greer to giveaway to our members.

This book provides a thorough account of victimization across the social spectrum of class, race, age and gender. The Second Edition has been fully revised and expanded, with two parts now spanning the key perspectives and issues in victimology.

Covering theoretical, social and political contexts, the book:

  • Includes new chapters on defining and constructing victims, fear and vulnerability, sexuality, white collar crime and the implications of crime policy on victims
  • Examines a global range of historical and theoretical perspectives in victimology and features a new chapter on researching victims of crime
  • Reinforces your learning through critical thinking sections, future research suggestions, chapter summaries and a glossary of key terms
  • Now includes a companion website, complete with links to relevant journal articles in victimology

Victims, Crime and Society is the essential text for studies in victimology across criminology, criminal justice, community safety, youth justice, and related areas.
