Robert K Yin is a well known pioneer of the rigorous use of case studies. His book takes the reader through all the stages from problem definition through design, data collection, analysis, and reporting; with an emphasis on the truly distinguishing features of the case study method. Single and multiple case studies are considered, and forty illustrative case examples are included -- many of them famous studies in the social science literature.
