"This book examines several contentious and understudied criminal career issues using one of the world's most important longitudinal studies, the Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development (CSDD), a longitudinal study of 411 South London boys followed in criminal records to age 40. The analysis reported in the book explores issues related to prevalence, offending frequency, specialization, onset sequences, co-offending, chronicity, career length, and trajectory estimation. The results of the study are considered in the context of developmental/life-course theories, and the authors outline an agenda for criminal career research generally, and within the context of the CSDD specifically."--Jacket

Envisioning criminology : researchers on research as a process of discovery by Michael D Maltz( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Envisioning Criminology: Researchers on Research as a Process of Discovery' demonstrates the ability of visualizations to enhance both qualitative and quantitave research methods, from the history and foundations to cutting-edge, emerging visual techniques. It demonstrates how visualizations can contextualize data, giving researchers insights not only in presenting conclusions but in the development of initial hypotheses and research questions. Divided into three sections, the book opens with background: the limitations of current research paradigms, the history of visualization use in Criminology and Criminal Justice and other disciplines, and the advantages of visualizations. The second section provides concrete examples and methodologies for using visualizations to complement quantitative data (including mapping, hot spot analyses, visualizing criminal careers, and data simulations over time). The third section demonstrates how visualizations can complement qualitative and mixed methods research. This work provides an inspiring and valuable resource for researchers across the fields of criminology and criminal justice, as well as related disciplines like sociology, public health, and social psychology
