Description
"Up-to-date and comprehensive, this book offers a thorough discussion of qualitative and quantitative research methods in criminal justice. The authors discuss the underlying logic of each approach as well as how to collect and analyze data for each, showing readers the larger context in which criminal justice science is done. The interdependence between theory and method is emphasized throughout, along with the importance of making alternative philosophical assumptions when doing research. Readers gain a solid foundation to use as they continue their study of methodology or conduct research techniques in applied settings. The book covers all eight major methodological topics, with an emphasis on qualitative research methods, global perspective, and comparative/critical perspective. In addition it includes a unique treatment of white-collar crime, extensive coverage of ethical and political issues, and a section on how to find and read articles and write a literature review. For anyone interested in the research methods of criminal justice.
