The book I read was a slightly different version not for sale in the US. For those in a college victimology course, this book is excellent.
Lots of information about the rediscovery and plight of victims over the last 30 or so years. Certainly, I would not recommend this book for anyone outside a victimology or criminal justice course, as that is who the author's target audience focuses on.
