New Visions of Crime Victims

Edited by: Carolyn Hoyle, Richard Young

This innovative collection presents original theoretical and empirical research on criminal victimization. The first part of the book challenges stereotypical conceptions of victimization, focusing on non-traditional victims of crime, such as male victims of domestic violence, victims of male-on-male rape, institutional victims and the "victim-offenders" who are recipients of IRA punishment beatings. The second part of the volume considers criminal justice responses to victimization. Chapters examine the perspectives of victims who become involved in court, probation and restorative processes. This book will further debate on how we conceptualize victims and their appropriate role in the criminal justice system.
