Chapter 3, “Theory and Research,” helps students with no prior coursework in social theory understand the importance of theory and its connection to research.The book contains many explanatory diagrams and interesting examples drawn from scholarly literature and incorporates feminist and postmodernist theories in the “Meaning of Methodologies” chapter (Ch. 4). Covers writing a literature review and ethics early in Chapter 5 and concludes with a chapter on writing a research report.
