Hartley's (U. of Texas, San Antonio) overview of the main research methods used in criminology and criminal justice will be of use as a supplemental reader for undergraduate and graduate core research methods courses in these fields. Following an introduction to the scientific method, the research, and how to read a research article, the text contains chapters on specific research methods, each featuring a brief introduction to the method, the method's strengths and weaknesses, and example research articles, the latter dating from the late 1980s to 2009.
