Since the birth of the field of victimology in the late 1940s and early 1950s, research has focused on victim-offender relationships and victim culpability. It has only been in the last few decades, as the field of victimology continues to grow and with several national criminal justice organizations launching victimology sub-sections, that researchers have both studied the effects of crime upon the victim and analyzed the services provided to the crime victim. In Current Issues in Victimology Research, editors Laura Moriarty and Robert Jerin reveal the criminal act’s impact upon individuals and society as understood through recent research, providing the criminal justice field with a foundation for grasping the complexities of crime victimization. Current Issues in Victimology Research serves well as a textbook for a victimology course or as a companion to any traditional textbook.

This new edition features the works of noted scholars and practitioners in the field who summarize the existing literature on victimology and its sub-areas. Many of the chapters together represent topical areas not covered in other volumes, and the original empirical research contained in the chapters has not been published elsewhere.

Moreover, each chapter represents a thorough, comprehensive, and up-to-date view of its subject matter. The fifteen chapters address current issues in victimology research, including:

  • victim services
  • effectiveness of batterer intervention programs
  • electronic monitoring of domestic violence offenders
  • improving police records of repeat domestic violence
  • repeat victimization and problem-oriented policing
  • black women victimized by the police
  • hate crimes
  • child fatalities
  • children's advocacy centers
  • elder maltreatment and social responses
  • elder neglect and strain
  • campus crime
  • Federal legislation and campus response to college sexual assault
  • campus rape adjudication
  • youth internet victimization
