The ultimate thesis resource for students in Criminal Justice and Criminology, this handbook is a comprehensive guide to developing and writing graduate level research. It takes the student on a step-by-step journey through the entire thesis process from initial ideas to a completed product or even a published article. The book can be used by students either working independently or in close consultation with faculty and shows students how to maximize interactions with their thesis committee. The authors draw on their combined fifty years of working with graduate students to: * Guide students through topic and design decisions, anticipating their questions and providing examples of how to present and format their information * Provide useful tips for organizing tasks and following a regular schedule of production that will make the thesis project logical and manageable * Offer specific and helpful examples from actual theses to highlight the best ways to approach a wide variety of methodological hurdles * Help students adapt to a clear and effective academic writing style *Outline strategies for the successful defense of the prospectus as well as the final thesis Overall I find this to be one of the best books on thesis writing for the social sciences that I have ever come across. - Melissa A.
