Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Victims in the War on Crime provides a rare critical analysis of the role of victims in the criminal justice system as a whole. Breaking new ground in focusing not only on the victims of crime, but also on those of the war on victimless crime, Markus Dirk Dubber salvages the project of vindicating victims' rights for its own sake, rather than as a weapon in the war against criminals. Uncovering the legitimate core of the victims' rights movement from underneath existing layers of bellicose rhetoric, he demonstrates how victims' rights can help us build a system of American criminal justice after the frenzy of the war on crime has died down.
