The Routledge Handbook on Victims' Issues in Criminal Justice is a comprehensive and authoritative handbook on current issues, with a distinctive emphasis on the delivery of suitable and effective services. The editor provides an introduction and conclusion to the handbook, synthesizing original contributions from current leaders in the field, surveying victims' rights in the United States, victim participation in the criminal justice system, victims' welfare and needs, and most notably the services that have been developed in response. A section on special populations in the United States brings focus to current and emerging issues faced within the country, while a section covering international and transnational victimization explores globalization and the implications of other legal traditions and systems.

This handbook addresses the crucial and complex topic of victims' issues, examining both societal and governmental reactions to victims' concerns and acquainting readers with the issues that discord may cause, and how they affect the provision of services. This book will serve as an essential reference for academics and practitioners working with crime victims, as well as for students taking courses in victimology, criminology, sociology, and related subjects.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Within victimology, in addition to journal articles, textbooks, and research reports, there is a continuing need to fill in the gaps. This Handbook on Victims' Issues, edited by Cliff Roberson, will stand out as such a document. This scholarly text offers a variety of information, and could serve as an excellent companion anthology for an advanced course." -- John P. Dussich, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor, California State University, Fresno

Roberson's Handbook on Victims' Issues in Criminal Justice is an indispensable resource for any criminal justice professional who deals with crime victims. The major topics are thoroughly covered, as well as cutting-edge topics, including restorative justice and LGBT victims.-Robert Winters, J.D., Professor, Kaplan University
