Despite providing the foundation for much of nursing education from medical-surgical nursing to pharmacology, pathophysiology continues to intimidate many students. While most textbooks offer too much or not enough information, the new edition of Lachel Story's Pathophysiology: A Practical Approach selects the ideal level of content and delivers it in a student-friendly, accessible way. Praised by both instructors and students for its clear writing style, use of dynamic images, and current research and epidemiological trends, it employs a concept-based approach.
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.
