The Politics of Victimization

Victims, Victimology, and Human Rights

Robert Elias

Considering victimology as a reflection of the structure of American society, Elias examines its links to the broad arenas of social, political and economic relations and advocates a new victimology of human rights that embraces victims of both crime and oppression.
