About this book

This study addresses the management of victims and victim policy under the Coalition government, in light of an increasing move towards neoliberal and punitive law and order agendas. With a focus on victims of anti-social behaviour and hate crime, Duggan and Heap explore the changing role of the victim in contemporary criminal justice discourses.

Reviews

"This is an original and thought-provoking book that casts a much-needed critical gaze over recent developments in criminal justice policy and the 'victim agenda'. Duggan and Heap astutely situate these shifts within a wider criminological framework, and demonstrate their convergence with neoliberal strategies of crime control. A timely study that should be read by all scholars and students of criminology, as well as practitioners, who are interested in the how we treat the victims of crime." - Professor Majid Yar, University of Hull, UK
