      Abstract

      This book is one of five published so far under the series title ‘Pioneers in Contemporary Criminology’. Few, I suppose, would dispute this claim in relation to Paul Rock. This book is a record of his significant contribution to criminology, and victimology in particular, over a career which spans well over forty years. It consists of sixteen previously published journal articles covering a period from 1968 to 2008. These have been chosen by Professor Rock himself and he also provides an introduction explaining why these essays were chosen along with his own reflections on his career and academic development. This introduction is as fascinating and stimulating in its own right as the respective journal articles.
