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.

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.

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.”

“A comprehensive and insightful presentation of victimology and victimization…Well written, many learning aids within each chapter that benefit the student.” 

Well researched and comprehensive coverage of topics”

Comprehensive text that integrates theory, research, and practice”

“Lots of information is provided…There are several topics within each section. The ancillary materials are a huge bonus and put together well”
