Written for use in undergraduate courses in criminal justice and criminology, this textbook covers the basics in developing research skills using actual case studies. Ethical decision-making is stressed throughout the text, and exercises are designed by Bachman (U. of Delaware) and Schutt (U. of Massachusetts) to teach beginning students how to combine qualitative and quantitative research methods in the investigation process. Now in its third edition, this volume has been expanded to include a CD-ROM that offers PowerPoint presentations, test questions and recommended assignments in the field.
