Description

This text provides a detailed yet accessible and intelligible introduction to social research methods, focusing on four major approaches to research: experimentation, survey research, field research, and the use of available data. In each case, the authors provide a detailed account of the advantages and disadvantages as well as the process of carrying out research. Numerous studies are described, with examples drawn from sociology, social psychology, demography, history, education, and political science. Sociologists; students of sociology.show more
