For courses in victimology and criminal justice.

Combining theory with responses to victimization
Understanding Violence and Victimization explores the various forms of violence and their profound impact on victims across settings — at home, in the community, or as a result of personal assault or abuse. Drawing on extensive field experience, Meadows provides theory and recommendations, and contextualizes the diverse influences on violence and victimization — from social and legal responses, to the offender’s role. More practical than theoretical, the 7th edition features updates across all chapters reflecting current issues and developments in the field. It includes a new chapter on firearms and victimization, and new analysis and resources covering victim laws and rights.
