A victim-centered approach is an invitation to imagine justice through a more .

Penal victimology focuses on crime victims who experience acts of interpersonal aggression that are clearly prohibited in criminal and civil law (Fattah, 2010;Karmen, 2010). A victim-centered approach is an invitation to imagine justice through a more humane lens that starts with the people who have suffered injury, assesses their needs, listens to them, considers their views, involves them in pursuing justice, keeps them informed, offers opportunities for facilitated dialogue with their perpetrator if desired, and provides physical, emotional, financial and spiritual supports as needed, as long

I graduated with a Bachelor's in criminal justice from Loyola University Chicago, which is actually one of the only universities/colleges in the nation to offer a class specifically geared toward the study of victims of crime. When I took the class, this edition was the most current (and required text), so it was very expensive. Even though this book covered the study of victims of crime in great depth, was extremely informational, and gave a whole new perspective of the criminal justice system (CJS), I would buy the most current edition instead because victim advocacy & victim involvement in the CJS is rapidly growing & changing. Therefore, if you want the most accurate and up-to-date information, I recommend buying the most current edition. If that is not an issue, then I highly recommend this edition.

Other reviewers have largely been unfair--never mind that several reviewers were giving negative ratings to sellers, rather than the book itself.

I find Karmen's book to be quite easy to understand. Some have complained it is too "wordy." But I find that the author often provides clarification, subtlety, or nuance, and at no point did I feel that it was a chore to read. The book is comprehensive, which I expect for a semester of study on an entire sub-discipline of criminology. There are plenty of pertinent examples, interesting anecdotes, and the points are made in a familiar and approachable way which is not presumptuous of your previous academic background. This has been one of the better textbooks assigned in my studies.

Being a student working toward a Master's Degree in Criminal Psychology, I was in need of this book for a class on Victimology. The book is very thorough and very informative on the different types of victims, their part in helping get the criminals off the street and the aid we can provide to the victim after falling prey to a various criminal acts. The book was delivered as described. I would definitely purchase from this seller again....

It was cheaper (even with shipping) to buy the book here than it was at my school's bookstore. I don't sell textbooks back because you never get nearly what you paid for them, but this one was pretty good regardless. I was able to use it for several other papers in other classes.

Shipped and delivered fast. This is a book I am using for my Forensic Psychology masters degree program. It's a great read, glad that I found it. Will have to suggest to my classmates.
