'This is a comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date collection of articles by leading writers in the area. It covers key theoretical issues...such as feminism and the impact of crime on the old, the young and within communities. It provides an account of the development of policy in relation to victim support and the criminal justice process along with a critical evaluation of restorative responses. It explores contemporary issues such as...surveillance and the use of victimology and is of considerable interest to all those involved in supporting the victims of crime.' - Hazel Croall, Chair of Criminology, School of Law and Social Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK
