For courses in Research Methods in Criminology or Criminal Justice.

Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods, 2e is a rigorous yet engaging text that offers balanced coverage of contemporary research methods. Filled with criminology and criminal justice examples, it demonstrates how research is relevant to the field and what tools are needed to actually conduct that research. Streamlined in this edition, it offers distinct coverage of qualitative research and quantitative research and includes new Camtasia-based learning modules that visually reinforce key concepts. With its real-life examples and cutting-edge content, the text goes beyond the nuts and bolts to teach students how to competently critique as well as create research-based knowledge.
