Challenging Notions, Second Edition
Critical Victimology in Canada
This expanded and updated second edition introduces students to both the theoretical and applied aspects of victimology and provides a critical foundation for evaluation. Tammy Landau, an expert in criminal justice, explores patterns of victimization in Canada, the experiences of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system, restorative approaches to victimization, and the challenges presented when the state is the perpetrator of crime. This edition reflects new trends and development in policy, has been updated to include data from the 2009 General Social Survey, and incorporates a new analysis of the various forms of family violence. Featuring current scholarship, well chosen examples, and thoughtful chapter discussion questions, this uniquely Canadian text is a valuable resource for second- and third-year victimology classrooms.
