Description

It is a common perception that violent crime is on the increase and social surveys record a growing fear of victimisation among the public. Yet not all violence is criminalized, and much criminal violence still goes unreported. This text examines the series of decisions - by victims, police officers, prosecutors and courts - which determine whether or not violent behaviour is criminalized. The authors examine the relationships underpinning violence, the reasons for violent acts and the factors militating against successful court prosecutions. In doing so, they provide an account of the reality of assault and identify a serious dislocation between the purposes of victims and the purposes of the justice system in the treatment of violent crime.
