520    "This third edition is designed as an introduction to 
       research methods in criminal justice techniques. The 
       detailed information that is generated by research is a 
       management tool that has become a significant part of 
       criminal justice operations. The text discusses the 
       purposes, process, and uses of research that focus on 
       identifying what information is already known about a 
       particular topic or question. Ethical issues in criminal 
       justice research are reviewed, as is investigating the 
       validity and reliability of crime data sources. Also 
       offered is an introduction to research design--the plan or
       blueprint for a complete research project. The principles 
       of sampling are thoroughly discussed as is survey research,
       a common form of gathering information in the criminal 
       justice setting. A review of the concept of scaling and 
       some common methods of scale construction are introduced. 
       Additional major topics include qualitative interviews and
       observational studies in qualitative research, as well as 
       a wide variety of research techniques that comprise 
       evaluation research. The definitions and examples provided
       in the book will help students and practitioners to both 
       comprehend research articles and reports and to conduct 
       their own research. Each of the authors brings specific 
       areas of expertise to the text, and they are familiar with
       the research process and have worked together on several 
       published studies. The text is designed primarily for 
       persons with little or no research background and provides
       real-world examples and clear definitions of terms and 
       concepts"--Provided by publisher.
