About the Author:
Lisa A. Baglione is a Professor and the Chair of the Political Science Department at Saint Joseph′s University. Her major fields of study are International Relations and Comparative Politics. Dr. Baglione has published works exploring contemporary Russian foreign policy, post-settlement peacebuilding, the arms control decision-making process in the United States, the Soviet Union, and Russia, and the research-paper writing process, and has co-authored articles on the transformation of the Russian polity and economy in the early post-communist period. Currently, she is researching conflict transformation in the twenty-first century and contemporary Russian center-periphery relations. At Saint Joseph′s, Dr. Baglione teaches courses in which she developed the ideas, advice, and techniques offered in this work.
Review:
"The book′s strengths are clear: it summarizes the writing process that coincides with the typical process that I teach students to conduct empirically-oriented research in political science. The author captures the typical undergraduate political science major audience well, and is accessible to students who do not intend to pursue political science as a profession, but who I think will benefit from a greater understanding about the process that political scientists follow to identify a puzzle or problem, survey the literature, develop a thesis, and design and carry out a logical process to address the problem.” Author: Timothy LaPira Source: Review Published On: 2010-10-05

“The book is very accessible in terms of writing, complete with great examples. I like that it walks students through the process of finding a topic, formulating the research question and writing the literature review so thoroughly.” Author: Kimberly Cowell-Meyer Source: Review program Published On: 2010-10-05

"Most of my students did well once they identified a tractable research question. This is where Baglione’s text shines. A poorly-thought out project is not likely to end well, even if the author is otherwise smart and industrious. Designing research projects, starting with the development of a good question, is probably the single most important skill that I can teach beginning college students. It’s a wonderful reference. I’ve enjoyed using it, and I can imagine using it again in the future." Author: Christopher Marcoux Source: Review Published On: 2010-10-05

"The strengths are the checklists, the clear guidance from A to Z on how to think through the process; the calendar is helpful to students. The incorporation of political theory and the different students with different interests is excellent. Finally, it’s short and thus not overwhelming. It’s a simple guide and that’s very useful." Author: Rachel Cobb Source: Review Published On: 2010-10-05

"The strengths of the book are numerous: the use of actual student writing, the emphasis on multiple draft writing (I particularly appreciate this), the length of the text, the emphasis on finding and then evaluating sources and plagiarism, and I really appreciate the skills-based approachm particularly when it is deliberately done and demonstrates how these skills are portable." Author: Michelle Deardorff Source: Review Published On: 2010-10-05

"As a supplemental text, it contains an appropriate mix of writing skills and methodology. The emphasis is first and foremost on writing skills, but the book introduces enough methodology to help undergraduate students design rigorous research papers. I also like that the book provides clear advice for both qualitative and quantitative analysis (and combinations thereof)." Author: Kirsten Taylor Source: Review Published On: 2010-10-05
