    Review: "this text does everything that a research methods text should do – and it does it well."

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 31, 2017 11:52:48 AM

    Don't just take our word for it.

    We’ve received outstanding feedback on the new edition of Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice. Here’s what a customer had to say:

    Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice is an exciting instructional resource in today’s era of evidence-based criminology and criminal justice. While social research has been of interest in academic criminology and criminal justice ever since the positivist era of more than 100 years ago, it is only in the past two or three decades that rigorous scientific investigations into “what works” have commanded a central role – replacing the arm chair theorizing and untested but long-standing traditional practices of the not-so-distant past.
