Using a lively, informal writing style to address research methods questions, The Fundamentals of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice sheds light on how criminal research is conducted and helps students understand and appreciate the results. This brief textbook, derived from Bachman and Schutt’s popular The Practice of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice, Third Edition, offers more concise examples and less coverage of more complex methods than the original. Using both quantitative and qualitative studies, The Fundamentals of Research delineates how each methodology has been used to improve our understanding of criminal justice-related issues.

  • Integrates ethical concerns and ethical decision making throughout the text, encouraging students to appreciate the ethical dilemmas researchers face at each step of the research process
