Overview

Jan Yager, Ph.D. (the former J.L. Barkas) has added a new 2021 introduction, updated bibliography, and resources (50+ pages), in addition to the 2015 introduction, as well as, in 2023, updating her classic study of major violent and property crime victims, and their treatment by the criminal justice system, originally published in hardcover by Scribner's in 1978, with new statistics and selectively updated examples or added information. The author was interviewed by Edwin Newman on the TODAY Show when Victims was originally published, followed by a cross-country author tour. Victims inspired Edith Surgan in her crime victim advocacy work in New Mexico as well as the Hullingers in their establishment of Parents of Murdered Children. This second edition of Victims will be a welcome resource for anyone interested in learning more about what crime victims deal with as well as learning more about the criminal justice system.
