About the Author

Ronet Bachman, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware. She is coauthor of Statistical Methods for Crime and Criminal Justice (3rd ed.) and coeditor of Explaining Crime and Criminology: Essays in Contemporary Criminal Theory. In addition, she is author of Death and Violence on the Reservation and coauthor of Stress, Culture, and Aggression in the United States; and Violence: The Enduring Problem as well as numerous articles and papers that examine the epidemiology and etiology of violence, with a particular emphasis on women, the elderly, and minority populations. Her most recent federally funded research was a mixed-methods study that investigated the long-term trajectories of offending behavior using official data of a prison cohort released in the early 1990s and then interviewed in 2009.

Russell K. Schutt, PhD, is a professor and the chair of sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and a lecturer on sociology in the Department of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School (Massachusetts Mental Health Center). He completed his BA, MA, and PhD (1977) at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Sociology of Social Control Training Program at Yale University (1977–1979). His other books include Investigating the Social World: The Process and Practice of Research, Fundamentals of Social Work Research (with Ray Engel), Making Sense of the Social World (with Dan Chambliss), and Research Methods in Psychology (with Paul G. Nestor)―all with SAGE Publications, as well as Homelessness, Housing, and Mental Illness (Harvard University Press) and Social Neuroscience: Brain, Mind, and Society (coedited with Larry J. Seidman and Matcheri S. Keshavan, also Harvard University Press). Most of his peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters focus on the effect of social context on cognition, satisfaction, functioning, and recidivism; the orientations of service recipients and of service and criminal justice personnel; and the organization of health and social services. He is currently a coinvestigator for a randomized trial of peer support for homeless dually diagnosed veterans funded by the Veterans Administration.

HASH(0x8c92f078) out of 5 stars Research Methods Made Interesting 14 Sept. 2013
By Karina M Tooley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is pretty good for a text book. Obviously, it is research methods specifically targeted at criminology and criminal justice, but the real like examples are abundant with this textbook. The wording is not unnecessarily difficult and the book flows pretty seamlessly. Once I read the chapter's I feel like I have great knowledge of the material.

HASH(0x8c92f288) out of 5 stars High level snooze fest 9 Nov. 2013
By Brandolini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has every term, reference, and definition you could possibly want or need for this particular subject. However, the authors do a terrible job of explaining the various research methods, terminology, etc. in a user-friendly, understandable in a novice type of way. There has to be better textbook that exists for someone that has never had any exposure to this subject or type of research before.
