The Praeger Handbook of Victimology is the first full-scale reference to encompass the full scope of the discipline of victim studies, marking its evolution from an initial focus on homicide, child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence to a more wide-ranging modern interpretation that includes hate crimes, terrorism, and cyber crimes such as online bullying, stalking, and identity theft.



The Praeger Handbook of Victimology offers an up-to-date portrait of its field, including the latest research from criminal justice studies, feminist studies, and other disciplines, as well as the changing views of the victim from law enforcement and the public at large. The nearly 200 alphabetically organized entries cover everything from terminology unique to the field to victimizations relative to specific crimes to the extension of crime victim rights and victim interactions with the criminal justice system. Victims' advocates, legal professionals, students, researchers, or anyone fascinated by the impact of crime on society will find this a uniquely informative resource.
