Review:

Reviews of the previous edition

This is an excellent text. It is well-written, comprehensive, and authoritative. It will undoubtedly establish itself as the textbook of choice for introductory research methods courses in sociology and other social sciences. It contains enough substance and detail to be a continuing guide for students following more advanced courses... It hits the right balance of substance, authority and ease of access, and I am sure that it will be a great success (John Scott, University of Essex)

This is a remarkably interesting, attractive and accessible text on research methods. I'm impressed with Bryman's ability to move easily from quantitative to qualitative methods, as well as his efforts to move beyond that divide. The book not only has all the basic information, but lots of interesting tidbits in the text and numerous boxes. (George Ritzer, University of Maryland)

From the Publisher:

Now in its 2nd edition, this market leading textbook continues to provide students with an excellent explanation and demonstration of the main theories and techniques in social research methods. The book shows students how to assess the contexts within which different research methods may be used and how they should be implemented. It covers both quantitative and qualitative research and examines the significance of this very distinction. In addition to giving a thorough introduction to the practices of social research, the book relates issues of research method to wider issues within the social science field such as the links between theoretical traditions and their research approach. In an accessible and student friendly manner, the book shows students how to go about doing their own research projects and how to write up their research. The book contains up to date empirical research examples, so providing a text which carefully mixes theoretical issues with practical applications. Now in two colour, the text is well structured and easy to navigate with numerous real life examples and student learning aids including start of chapter guides, practical tips, checklists, review questions and web links. Online Resource Centre The text is also accompanied by a fully comprehensive Online Resource Centre which, used in conjunction with the book, will reinforce student learning and provide much needed extra advice on doing research projects. The web site contains: PowerPoint slides, lecturer's guide, discussion questions, research examples, multiple choice questions, web links and the research project guide.
