Noaks, Lesley and Wincup, Emma (2006) Criminological research: understanding qualitative methods. London: Sage.

Criminological Research offers a comprehensive guide to both the theory and practice of qualitative criminological research. Through a detailed yet concise explanation, the reader is shown how a variety of methods and approaches work and how their outcomes may be interpreted. Practically focused throughout, the book also offers constructive advice for students analysing and writing their research projects.

Key features of the book include:
• An innovative framework - combining different methodologies and approaches
• A variety of `real-life' examples and case studies - enriches the book for the reader
• A set of practical exercises and further reading sections in each chapter - pedagogical and student-focussed throughout
• A broad coverage - includes discussions of ethnography, interviewing, documentary evidence and data-analysis
• A detailed and practical discussion of the politics of research, such as issues of access, ethics and confidentiality

The book has a flowing narrative and student-friendly structure which makes it accessible to students. Written by experts in the field, it will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers, helping them to undertake effective research in both criminology and courses in qualitative research in related disciplines.
