Crime Victims : An Introduction to Victimology - 6th edition

Crime Victims : An Introduction to Victimology (ISBN10: 0495006033; ISBN13: 9780495006039)
ISBN13: 978-0495006039
ISBN10: 0495006033

Summary: A first in the field and true classic, Karmen offers the most comprehensive, balanced coverage of victimology - a complex and, at times, controversial subject - available today anywhere.
New to the Edition
  • The text has been divided into thirteen (versus seven) chapters. With each chapter briefer instructors will find the material easier to teach. Chapter 5 (Special Victims) in th
    e previous edition has been split into three chapters (Child Victims, Victims of Intimate and Family Violence, and Victims of Sexual Assault) and the chapter from the previous edition on looking towards the future (Chapter 7: Victims in the 21st Century: Alternate Directions) has been split into two new chapters to examine key trends in victimology in more depth.
  • The new edition features expanded coverage of 9/11 victims, as well as elder abuse, campus crimes, date rape/GHB, white-collar crime, restorative justice, identity theft, and school/work violence.
  • The author has integrated more state-specific legislation and examples into the Sixth Edition to guide and suggest student inquiry into policy questions today.
  • New key terms have been incorporated with critical thinking, writing, and researching exercises as suggested by reviewer feedback.
  • Now available for the first time, Microsoft PowerPoint slides for helpful instruction, as well as a fully revised Instructor's Resource Manual with Test Bank.

Features
  • Key terms are boldfaced and appear in a list at the end of each chapter.
  • Discussion questions at the end of each chapter help instructors to start a class dialogue on chapter material and can also be used for essays.
  • Critical thinking questions which focus on helping students learn to write and research effectively can be used as paper topics or assigned for brief essays.
  • Boxes in the text provide a deeper discussion of key topics, such as The System's Shortcomings from a Victim's Point of View, and Groups of Victims that Have Been Recently Rediscovered.
