9780071232586: Need to Know: Social Science Research Methods

This text is written for students who will not pursue sociology as a career yet, whether they now realize it or not, will need to interpret social research in their careers and, more than likely, have opportunities to do research. The book's focus is on equipping students with the tools both to evaluate research done by others and to do their own research. Exercises in the text help students develop skills and strategies for research, including Internet assignments for finding and evaluating sources. The text provides students with a solid grounding in the relevant aspects of the philosophy of science and thoroughly explains the differences between quantitative and qualitative research methods.
