Designed for Research Methods in Criminal Justice courses, this practical book strives to develop its readers into informed consumers of criminal justice-based research. It covers the essentials found in leading criminal justice and criminology research texts, but avoids their lengthy explanations and technical jargon. In their place, Lasley presents clear, to-the-point descriptions and illustrations of the techniques needed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of criminal justice and criminology research.
