An easy-to-read global perspective on the study of victimology
Victimology: Legal, Psychological, and Social Perspectives examines trends in victim¿-offender relationships, with emphasis on victims’ rights. The text discusses two components of victimology. The first deals with the harm victims suffer, victim services, reducing victimization, and consequences for offenders. The second looks at the role of being selected as a victim. Other topics include victim impact statements, constitutional and civil rights of victims, compensation and restitution of victims, international aspects of victimology, sexual victimization, intimate partner abuse, and child abuse. The 5th edition explores evolving theories, research, and trends in victimology, with particular attention paid to the causes and consequences of victimization.

Author Biography

Cliff Roberson LLM, PhD, is an Emeritus Professor of Criminal Justice at Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas, and a retired Professor of Criminology at California State University, Fresno, California. He has authored or co-authored numerous books and texts on legal subjects and victims’ issues. His previous academic experiences include Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs, Arkansas Tech University; Dean of Arts and Sciences, University of Houston, Victoria; Director of Programs, National College of District Attorneys; Professor of Criminology and Director of Justice Center, California State University, Fresno; and Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, St. Edwards University.

Other legal employment experiences include Trial Supervisor, Office of State Counsel for Offenders, Texas Board of Criminal Justice, and judge pro-tem in the California courts.

His first involvement with victim issues came in 1981 when the State Bar of Texas appointed a committee on victim issues. He was fortunate to be appointed to that committee. In 1984 as Director of the Justice Center, California State University, Fresno, he authorized funds to hold a training course on victim services. Years later as a faculty member at Washburn University, he attended a conference in Kansas City on victim services. It was at this conference that the American Society of Victimology was founded and he joined as a life member. Unfortunately, the society has not been very active in recent years.
