Overview

This year more than 20 million Americans will become victims of crime. Very few will get the help they need to get their lives back on track. Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime presents a new approach, designed to help victims rebuild their lives - now being piloted from Vermont to California - by police chiefs, prosecutors, corrections officials, victim advocates and community leaders.
Drawing on more than 30 years of criminal justice experience, including almost 8 years as executive director of the National Center for Victims of Crime, author Susan Herman explains why justice for all requires more than holding offenders accountable - it means addressing victims' three basic needs: to be safe, to recover from the trauma of the crime, and regain control of their lives.
With guiding principles and practical examples of how to respond to victims of any kind of crime, Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime provides a roadmap for everyone who wants to pursue this new vision of justice.

Editorial Reviews

David Kennedy
Susan Herman's quietly passionate manifesto serves to show even those of us committed to preventing victimization that we neglect actual victims, both in theory and in practice. Parallel Justice offers both a conceptual framework and immediate, practical steps toward redressing crime's awful impact on individuals, families, and communities.
Howard Zehr
In this important book Herman not only outlines why parallel obligations--to victims and offenders--are necessary, she offers a theory of how this might work, with concrete suggestions for where we can start today, in our own communities.
Tracey Meares
Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime is a critically cogent explanation of how we fail victims of crime in this country, and an elegantly lucid prescription for how to make progress in delivering justice to them.
