As criminological inquiry continues to broaden, deepen and diversify its presence within and across the social sciences, this third and substantially up-dated edition of `Doing Criminological Research' is an indispensable source. Its range and scope, together with the authority of its coverage and analysis, render it a tour de force. Essential reading for entry level, and more experienced researchers, alike.
