In , Dr. Review: "I believe that this text would work well in a victimology course taught in a social work department, especially at the undergraduate level The use of little vignettes to illustrate the text increases interest and helps develop some topics by example.
It is well-documented from the point of citations All of my favorite authors were represented, and some "classics" with older dates were included, which I consider important. It presents a great deal of information; however, the discussions within each chapter are presented as interesting reading materials, not boring legalese citations that students find difficult to relate to. I like that the statistics, concepts, and comparisons between the UCR and NCVS are given throughout the chapters instead of trying to discuss all of it in one chapter.
The writing style is clear and engaging, and the level is appropriate for undergraduate students. Great condition
