This is a Very Good, Unused, Copy aside from a former owner's signature and name stamp on the ffp this copy is in virtually mint condition. An excellent copy--clean with a very tiny slight abrasion at the bottom of the cover's spine. This is a Very Good Copy of an often under-rated text because it was--when first published--somewhat groundbreaking. Kerlinger took social scientists in the world of empirical research where a few equations and some knowledge of set-theory was absolutely essential. The book is beautifully structured and remains one of the finest ever published in the field of behavioural analysis and empirical social science research. It remains a Classic in the field of behavioural research in the Social Sciences. Bookseller Inventory # 002764

About this title:


First published in 1964, this text has set the standard for other texts in the field of behavioral research methodology. It emphasises the fundamentals of understanding how to solve a scientific research problem, focusing upon the relationship between the research problems and the design of the research. This edition has more examples from psychology, sociology, and education than the previous edition and places a greater emphasis on multivariate approaches and methods.
