    DescriptionRather than offer descriptions of cases or short three paragraph samples, this book provides readers with full cases drawn from a variety of disciplines that illustrate different case study techniques (descriptive, explanatory, cross-case and methodological). Throughout the text, the author provides thoughtful insights and guidelines on the cases and the different approaches to doing case study research.

Outside of COSMOS, Dr. Yin has assisted numerous other research groups, helping to train their field teams or to design research studies. A recent engagement has been with the United Nations Development Programme, and another assignment has been to provide guidance to assist doctoral students at the University of Copenhagen. Currently, Dr. Yin holds the position of distinguished scholar-in-residence at American University's School of International Service (Washington, DC). Earlier, he served as Visiting Scholar at the U.S. Government Accountability Office's research methodology division. Dr. Yin has authored nearly 100 journal articles and books. His first book on the case study method, Case Study Research: Design and Methods (2014) is in its fifth edition. He has edited two case study anthologies (Yin, 2004; and 2005) and has most recently authored a new text on qualitative research methods (Yin, 2011). Dr. Yin received his B.A. in history from Harvard College (magna cum laude) and his Ph.D. in brain and cognitive sciences from M.I.T.
