A research methods textbook written specifically for students of politics, Empirical Political Analysis introduces a wide range of research techniques comprehensively and accessibly. With a balanced focus on quantitative and qualitative analysis, the book follows the research process from start to finish, offering a solid research foundation for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This is an adaptation of the successful US textbook by C. R. Brians, Lars Willnat, J. B. Manheim and R. C. Rich. James Babb has made various sympathetic updates to the text, including examples from the UK, Europe and other countries. Two new chapters have been added to the book -- on discourse analysis and hermeneutics. Students of politics will find this is the only introductory methods textbook which covers their field comprehensively and in depth with a wealth of up-to-date examples and useful exercises.
