9780742564411: Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology: An Interdisciplinary Approach

Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology is a core text for criminology and criminal justice research methods courses. It strives to offer a general foundation of knowledge that transcends particular topics or subject areas, allowing students to apply research methods and concepts to a multitude of scenarios. Even though the textbook has been written primarily for criminal justice and criminology majors, there is an underlying recognition that research methods and findings are common among all of the social sciences. This text has been designed to be user-friendly, even when dealing with some fairly complex statistical and theoretical concepts. The most critical points are clearly stated and illustrated with examples chosen to be interesting in their own right.

About the Author:

Lee Ellis is professor of sociology at University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and is also affiliated with Minot State University in the United States. Richard D. Hartley is assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Texas at San Antonio. Anthony Walsh is professor of criminal justice at Boise State.

Review:

Using an excellent blend of methods, statistics, and theory, the Ellis, Hartley, and Walsh research methods book is a remarkable text that will definitely be valuable to beginning and advanced researchers. I applaud them for their ability to successfully apply research methods to real-world problems, while at the same time use research examples from a vast array of academic disciplines and topics worldwide. Their book should certainly be one that research methods instructors should consider adopting so that students have an all-encompassing methods experience! (Chris Gibson, PhD.)

Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology takes a subject matter that most students find inherently boring and makes it engaging, interesting, and inspiring. Their use of interdisciplinary examples puts a fresh spin on the standard cookie-cutter examples typically used in the explanation of research methods. Ellis, Hartley, and Walsh have created a book that explains difficult and complex material in a way that is easy to comprehend. I recommend this book to all students learning about research methods and to all professors who are teaching this challenging topic. (Kevin M. Beaver)

The authors offer an interdisciplinary approach of research that anchors on a broader spectrum of interests in methodology than most textbooks. Instead of solely focusing on criminal justice research, this book introduces the major social/behavioral science disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, economics, geography, and their relationship with criminal justice and criminology. I think it is a smart and thoughtful approach given the facts that majorities of research methods applied in CJ are borrowed from those closely related disciplines and I have no doubt that they will have continuing influence in CJ research. (Ling Ren, Ph.D)
