"Redesigning Social Inquiry is aimed at social scientists looking to escape the banality of everyday quantitative research, and here they'll find a sophisticated way out of all the by-the-numbers work. But this book also speaks to those of us who have a profound knowledge of cases and want to explore the implications of this understanding. With this rigorous yet accessible book, Charles Ragin has completed his mission to reorient social science." - Edwin Amenta, University of California, Irvine"
