Review

“After reviewing several texts supposedly designed for undergraduate criminal justice students, I decided that this book clearly will be the most useful for helping my students understand research design issues. The presentation is straightforward and easy to read and the examples are topical and concise.” (Mary West-Smith 20090330)
