Armed and Considered Dangerous is the most ambitious survey ever undertaken of criminal acquisition, possession, and use of guns
Handbook of survey research by Peter H Rossi( Book )

31 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handbook of Survey Research provides an introduction to the theory and practice of sample survey research. It addresses both the student who desires to master these topics and the practicing survey researcher who needs a source that codifies, rationalizes, and presents existing theory and practice. The handbook can be organized into three major parts. Part 1 sets forth the basic theoretical issues involved in sampling, measurement, and management of survey organizations. Part 2 deals mainly with """"hands-on, """" how-to-do-it issues: how to draw theoretically acceptable samples, how to write
Ghetto revolts by Peter H Rossi( Book )

19 editions published between 1970 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past decade, transaction, and now Society, has dedicated itself to the task of reporting the strains and conflicts within the American system. The work done in the magazine has crossed disciplinary boundaries. This represents much more than simple cross-disciplinary "team efforts." It embodies rather a recognition that the social world cannot be easily carved into neat academic disciplines; that, indeed, the study of the experience of blacks in American ghettos, or the manifold uses and abuses of agencies of law enforcement, or the sorts of overseas policies that lead to the celebration of some dictatorships and the condemnation of others, can best be examined from many viewpoints and from the vantage points of many disciplines. The editors of Society magazine are now making available in permanent form the most important work done in the magazine, supplemented in some cases by additional materials edited to reflect the tone and style developed over the years by transaction

The roots of urban discontent: public policy, municipal institutions, and the ghetto by Peter H Rossi( Book )

12 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central concern of this volume is to examine the interrelationships between three levels of urban social structure: (1) local public policy-makers, comprised of elected public officials, the heads of major municipal departments, and "civic notables," or persons who play important roles in urban civic life; (2) "institutional agents," or persons who operate on the grass roots levels of important urban structures, for example, policemen, teachers, case workers, retail merchants, and personnel offices of major employers; and (3) rank-and-file black citizens. The design of the study is comparative. Fifteen cities were examined, representing 13 of the 15 major metropolitan areas of the U.S. The historical context is early 1968 when the field work for the study was undertaken. The research described in this volume tends to support three major conclusions: First, the central institutions of different cities treat their black citizens quite differently. Second, black citizens keenly appreciate those differences. Third, the different treatment of blacks from place to place depends on the political strength that they can muster. In cities where blacks are a large proportion of the electorate, municipal administrations tend to be more attentive to black leaders. In cities where blacks are poorly organized or constitute a small minority, black citizens tend to get short shrift. (Author/JM)

Just punishments : federal guidelines and public views compared by Peter H Rossi( Book )

The national survey used a factorial survey as its design strategy, allowing for analysis of a large variety of federal crimes and variations in the social characteristics of convicted felons.
