Research Methods in Crime and Justice (Paperback) (Brian L. Withrow)
About this item
This text offers a fresh, engaging approach to research methods for current and future criminal justice practitioners. Unlike competing books targeting criminology students, Withrow offers a wealth of cases including his experience as a Texas state trooper and as a professor to demonstrate that research skills are vital for success in the profession. Difficult concepts like multiple regression are woven into a clear sequence so that students practice all the core skills needed to conduct meaningful research. Unique ancillaries include an online Researcher’s Notebook that steps students with minimal instructor supervision through the design of a valid project, as well as full texts of journal articles keyed to challenging assignments.
