Summary

This book of original works aims to shed light on the debates over, the media attention on, and the psychology behind victimization. The first section of the text addresses victims' rights and responsibilities, as well as the victim-blaming trend that has emerged throughout history. Alcohol, sexual harassment and the media are common factors in victimization, and are discussed in the second part of the text, along with the controversial topic of male victims of domestic violence. The final segment of the text deals with the logistics of victim/offender programs, analyzing and questioning their effectiveness and appropriateness, while examining the voice of the victim in the criminal justice system.
