Challenging Notions: Critical Victimology in Canada
This ground-breaking work explores the world of victims and asks: How do we define and understand victims? Dr. Landau demonstrates that the study of victimology raises many challenging intellectual and practical issues, such as the relationship between the victim and the state, the inherently moral dimensions of victim status, and the influence of various forms of social inequality on our understanding of, and response to, victimization. Featuring excellent scholarship, well-chosen examples, and Canadian content, this title is sure to become an important part of the literature on victims in Canada.
