Victimology: The Essentials, Second Edition, is a comprehensive yet concise core textbook that 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 of victimology, 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 Second Edition features contemporary issues such as stalking, hate crimes, human trafficking, terrorism, and more.
