About this book


Towards a Critical Victimology offers a serious challenge to the law and order perspective on victims' rights and the false contest that is usually created between those rights and the rights of offenders. It sheds light on the way victim initiatives emerged, the timing of those initiatives, their seemingly ulterior motives, and the political interests they are meant to serve.
