In this exciting new Eighth Edition of his leading social research text, author Russell K. Schutt, an award-winning researcher and teacher, continues to make the field come alive through research stories that illustrate the methods presented in each chapter. Through numerous examples and hands-on exercises that help students learn by doing, Investigating the Social World helps readers understand research methods as an integrated whole. Readers will learn to appreciate the value of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies and understand the need to make ethical research decisions while also learning about research on contemporary social issues like the Internet and social relations, the police response to domestic violence, the sources of democracy, the determinants of voting, the impact of disasters, and the causes of violence.

About the Author:

Russell K. Schutt, PhD, is a professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, a Research Associate in the Department of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School (Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center), and a Research Associate at the Edith Nourse Rogers Veterans Administration Medical Center. He completed his BA, MA, and PhD (1977) at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Sociology of Social Control Training Program at Yale University (1977–1979). His other books include Understanding the Social World: Research Methods for the 21st Century, Fundamentals of Social Work Research (with Ray Engel), Making Sense of the Social World (with Dan Chambliss), and Research Methods in Psychology (with Paul G.

Seidman and Matcheri S. Keshavan, Harvard University Press). Most of his peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters focus on the effect of social context on cognition, satisfaction, functioning, and recidivism; the orientations of service recipients and of service and criminal justice personnel; and the organization of health and social services. His research has been supported by the Veterans Health Administration, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Cancer Institute, the Fetzer Institute, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the University of Massachusetts, and other state and local funders.
