Good research starts with careful planning and a thorough understanding of the research process. The abilities to design a research study and to evaluate those conducted by others are core skills every student of criminology must learn.

This is a completely updated new edition, and it features

  • A new skills-focused chapter on how to evaluate existing qualitative studies and design new ones
  • Rich examples from real research making the ideas and concepts concrete
  • New in-depth case studies on fashion counterfeiting, electronic monitoring and youth justice to illustrate the realities of conducting qualitative research
  • A full discussion of the politics of research, issues of access, ethics and managing risk in the field
  • Thought-provoking exercises reinforce practical research skills

This book is the perfect guide to theory and practice for any student undertaking qualitative research on crime or criminal justice.
