Victimology
The Essentials

Third Edition


January 2021 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Victimology: The Essentials, Third Edition, concisely explores the effects of victimization in the United States and internationally, with an emphasis on vulnerable populations. Drawing from the most up-to-date research, this accessible, student-friendly text provides an overview of the field with a focus on the scope, causes, and responses to victimization today. Renowned author and researcher Leah E. Daigle expertly relays the history and development of the field of victimology, the extent to which people are victimized and why, and how the criminal justice system and other social services interact with victims and with each other. The highly anticipated Third Edition features contemporary issues such as cybervictimization, the neurobiology of trauma, the victimization of LGBQT people, and much more.
