"I use the current edition and look forward to "upgrading" to the new edition when it comes out. In some ways, teaching victimology is challenging and this book, along with the ancillaries, make the preparation and instruction very manageable. I certainly intend to use the new edition and will very likely recommend it to colleagues."
