Although literature, religion and cultural practices of the South Asian region demonstrate a traditionally rich understanding of criminology and victimology, this book is the only one in print to focus on the region. It covers crime, criminal justice and victimization in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, focusing on the issues, their effect on the country and the government's efforts to mitigate them. Authors are from the U.S., India, UK, Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Singapore.
