Distilling material from Research Methods for Criminal Justice and Criminology (1995), Maxfield (Rutgers U.) and Babbie (Chapman U.) focus on the fundamentals of research methods and present a shorter, more concise textbook. Individual chapters cover theory and ethics in research; general issues in research design; concepts, operationalization, and measurement; experimental and quasi- experimental design; data collection and sampling; survey research; agency records, content analysis, and secondary data; evaluation research and policy analysis; and interpreting data.
