Description

Victimology is the study of the victim, i.e., the person who a crime has been perpetuated against. However, this topic will be explored from the standpoint of removing the term of victim almost completely and addressing the person as a whole being. Reexamining Victimology, Legal Support, and Victims Rights intends to redefine the victim, change the way it is considered within the legal system, address the language of propaganda against the victim, address hospitals and how they treat the victim, and eventually isolate any broken features of the legal system in assisting those who need help after a criminal legal offense. Law enforcement, government officials, policy makers, criminologists, victimologists, and academics, researchers, and students studying victimology, law, and related fields will benefit from this book.
