This thoroughly detailed text examines how an individual's belief in a just world determines his or her sense of, and responses to, victimization. It explores the direct and indirect relationships between justice, fate, risk, self-determinism, and self-interest, among other issues. The volume also includes methods of measuring beliefs in a just world and considers components of delusion, knowledge, and justification in the equation.
