Carly Hilinski-Rosick (PhD, 2007 ) and Daniel Lee recently published the co-edited book Contemporary Issues in Victimology:
Identifying Patterns and Trends.
The book provides a comprehensive collection of issues related to victim studies. The chapters included in the book consider individual and situational characteristics that relate to victimization incidents.
Hilinski, an associate professor at the University
of Tampa, wrote an individual chapter on recurring victimization in addition to co-editing the book. Lee contributed a chapter on how victimization experiences are related to the fear of crime and perceptions of risk. Several other members of the
Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice also contributed chapters that reflect their expertise. Shannon Phaneuf wrote about the complex issues that relate to mass shootings, and Sadie Mummert and doctoral candidate Kirsten Piatak co-authored
a chapter that addresses rape and sexual assault on college and university campuses. Alumnus Jason Spraitz (PhD, 2011 ), associate professor at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire, provided a chapter on institutional sexual abuse.
The book is intended
for academic audiences and is suitable for upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes focused on victim studies.
Issues in Victimology is published by Lexington Books.
