Summary "Victimology: Canadians in Context outlines the ways in which victims are created, defined, measured, understood, and supported in Canada today. Through an exploration of classic and contemporary theory, paired with an examination of Canadian research data and statistical analysis, this text offers a uniquely Canadian perspective on the study of victims and victimology. Incorporating new data from the 2014 General Social Survey on Victimization, and including two new chapters--one on Family Violence and the other on Victims in the Canadian Criminal Justice System--the new edition of Victimology is an up-to-date and essential resource for anyone seeking to fully understand the experiences of victims in Canada."-- Provided by publisher.
