The Victimization of Children: Emerging Issues keeps students and practitioners working with young victims on the cutting edge of the latest research developments regarding crimes against children. Leading experts from the legal, medical, and sociological communities explore some of the most urgent issues involving child victims.

Forward-thinking and thought-provoking, this timely resource provides sound research to expand your knowledge base.
