This book goes beyond the mere presentation and illustration of research techniques - it brings these details together in an interrelated way to encourage understanding, not memorization, of the material. The authors provide an overview of the philosophy of science to provide the groundwork for the subsequent methodological details. Throughout the text they explain and define concepts carefully and stress the theme of a continuing relationship between conceptual models and research design and statistical analysis. They encourage students to think through the ramifications of methodological decisions as they relate to the theory and substance of research topics.
