Synopsis: This text teaches students how to analyze issues not only in criminal justice using current General Social Survey data but also in the most authoritative national study of drug and alcohol use on US college campuses, the Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Study.

By providing step-by-step instructions, the text explores criminal justice by explaining how to conduct and analyze your own survey. Included in the package is a diskette with a GSS file, a College Alcohol Study data set, criminal justice and juvenile justice data sets.

About the Author: George Dowdall teaches undergraduate and graduate Criminal Justice and Sociology at St. Joseph′s University in Philadelphia. He is chair-elect of the American Sociological Association’s Section on Communication and Information Technologies. He has taught methods, statistics, and data analysis courses at St. Joseph′s University, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Brown University School of Medicine.

Kim A. Logio is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Saint Joseph′s University in Philadelphia. She teaches research methods for sociology and criminal justice students. She is actively involved in research on victims of juvenile crime and adolescent body image.

Earl Babbie was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1938, but his family chose to return to Vermont 3 months later, and he grew up there and in New Hampshire. In 1956, he set off for Harvard Yard, where he spent the next 4 years learning more than he initially planned. After 3 years with the US Marine Corps, mostly in Asia, he began graduate studies at the University of California―Berkeley. He received his PhD from Berkeley in 1969. He taught sociology at the University of Hawaii from 1968 through 1979, took time off from teaching and research to write full-time for 8 years, and then joined the faculty at Chapman University in Southern California in 1987. Although he is the author of several research articles and monographs, he is best known for the many textbooks he has written, which have been widely adopted in colleges throughout the United States and the world. He also has been active in the American Sociological Association for 25 years and currently serves on the ASA’s executive committee. He is also past president of the Pacific Sociological Association and California Sociological Association.



Fred Halley, Associate Professor Emeritus, SUNY-Brockport, received his bachelor’s degree in sociology and philosophy from Ashland College and his master’s and doctorate degrees from Case Western Reserve University and the University of Missouri, respectively. Since 1970, he has worked to bring both instructional and research computer applications into the undergraduate sociology curriculum. Halley has been recognized for his leadership in the instructional computing sections of the Eastern and Midwest Sociological Societies and the American Sociological Association. At Brockport, he served as a collegewide social science computing consultant and directed Brockport’s Institute for Social Science Research and the College’s Data Analysis Laboratory. Off campus, Halley directed and consulted on diverse community research projects that were used to establish urban magnet schools, evaluate a Head Start family service center, locate an expressway, and design a public transportation system for a rural county. Now residing in Rochester, New York, he plays an active role in a faith-based mentoring program for ex-offenders, and he volunteers for Micrecycle, an organization that refurbishes computers used by those on the other side of the computer divide in schools, daycares, youth centers, and other community organizations.
