Robert Yin's comprehensive presentation covers all aspects of the case study method - from problem definition, design, and data collection, to data analysis and composition and reporting. Yin also traces the uses and importance of case studies to a wide range of disciplines, from sociology, psychology and history to management, planning, social work, and education.New to the Third Edition are: additional examples of case study research; discussions of developments in related methods, including randomized field trials and computer-assisted coding techniques; and, added coverage of the strengths of multiple-case studies, case study screening, and the case study as a part of larger multi-method studies, and five major analytic techniques, including the use of logic models to guide analysis. This edition also includes references to examples of actual case studies in the companion volume "Applications of Case Study Research, Second Edition" (Sage, 2003).
