New for the Second Edition: L The second edition includes a thorough updating of the text, the addition of new sample articles to replace the six original ones, and discussions of new quasi-experimantal research methods, mutivariate analysis, and meta-analysis. Evaluating Social Science Research addresses the perennial need of students and all citizens to develop critical thinking skills, training them to be intelligent consumers of social science research. The authors show how knowing how to make critical, independent judgements of scientific claims is an important skill of living in a world where scientific claims are used increasingly to influence personal and political behaviour. The changes in this second edition reflect developments in the last 15 years of social science research, both in methods and perspectives.show more
