For courses in Violence and Victimization, Victimology, and Crime and Violence.


Combines theory with applied responses to victimization.


Understanding Violence and Victimization, Sixth Edition, goes beyond simple discussions of violence to explore the social and legal responses to victimization. Meadows focuses on the experience of victims and how the occurrence of violence; whether at home, in the community, or as the result of personal assault or abuse; can have a devastating effect. Drawing on extensive experience in the field, Meadows explores numerous types of violence and examines the offender—victim relationships, relevant data, and situational factors that influence violent incidents. Both students and those employed in crime prevention and victim services will find the text an indispensable resource for learning about and responding to violent crimes.
