This brief version of Ronet Bachman and Russell Schutt′s successful full text, The Practice of Research in Research Methods and Criminal Justice, gives a concise introduction to research design and techniques within the context of research methods and criminal justice. Plenty of in-depth examples taken from real criminal justice research help readers better understand the "big picture" of research methods and their policy implications for the field.

About the Author:

Ronet Bachman, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware. She is coauthor of Statistical Methods for Crime and Criminal Justice (3rd ed.) and coeditor of Explaining Crime and Criminology: Essays in Contemporary Criminal Theory. In addition, she is author of Death and Violence on the Reservation and coauthor of Stress, Culture, and Aggression in the United States; and Violence: The Enduring Problem as well as numerous articles and papers that examine the epidemiology and etiology of violence, with a particular emphasis on women, the elderly, and minority populations. Her most recent federally funded research was a mixed-methods study that investigated the long-term trajectories of offending behavior using official data of a prison cohort released in the early 1990s and then interviewed in 2009.

Review:

"After reviewing several texts supposedly designed for undergraduate criminal justice students, I decided that this book clearly will be the most useful for helping my students understand research design issues. The presentation is straightforward and easy to read and the examples are topical and concise." (Mary West-Smith )

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fundamentals of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice is a concise resource for understanding the multifaceted subject of research methods in the field of criminology and criminal justice. This book uniquely helps to teach research design and techniques within the context of substantive criminology and criminal justice issues of interest to students and the field. This is a briefer version of Ronet and Russ s successful The Practice of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice, written in a less formal style, with more concise examples drawn from everyday experience, and less coverage of complex or more rigorous methods. This is an excellent introductory methods text for undergraduate research courses in the fields of Criminal Justice and Criminology. It is ideal for students who need to understand how criminal justice research is done and appreciate the results, but may never do research themselves in the professional lives. Features of the Brief Edition: - the examples throughout the book integrate substantive criminal justice issues with research with a greater emphasis in the third edition on the major branches of the criminal justice system. - integrates policy throughout Chapter 9, and discusses policy implications for research methods throughout the text - integrates coverage of units of analysis in Chapter 2 - extensive use of graphics in every chapter facilitates students understanding of concepts discussed - contains extensive, updated exercise sets include Practice Exercises, Web research activities, SPSS exercises, Developing a Research Report activities - includes a robust Student Study Site which includes GSS data sets, Appendixes on using quantitative and qualitative software, a demo for HyperResearch s popular qualitative analysis software, a sample research proposal, as well as a variety of interactive exercises for students to do on their own. New to the 2nd edtion 1. New chapter on research ethics (Ch.3) that includes Zimbardo s prison experiment and Milgram s research on obedience to authority. 2. New coverage of evidence-based research and videos used for research 3. Updated discussion of causation that includes more field experiments and other unique methods. 4. New Case studies on effectiveness of drug courts, combining focus groups with official police records, homicide across nations,using Google Earth to track recidivism among sex offenders, evaluating the D.A.R.E. program, seeking higher education for inmates, among others. 5.
