“A comprehensive and insightful presentation of victimology and victimization, . . . well written, [with] many learning aids within each chapter that benefit the student.”

Michael S. Proctor, Texas A&M University–San Antonio

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.

I use the current edition and look forward to “upgrading” to the new edition when it comes out. In some ways, teaching victimology is challenging and this book, along with the ancillaries, make the preparation and instruction very manageable. I certainly intend to use the new edition and will very likely recommend it to colleagues.”
