Review

"Although the book is aimed at graduate students and novice researchers, its content-especially the introduction-has value to all social science researchers, regardless of whether they pursue qualitative or quantitative research." (Peter Hernon 2007-07-16)

5.0 out of 5 stars San Antonio 2 Jun 2008
By Mark D. Halx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good book for research students who desire a solid foundation in the use of theory in their studies. This book is scholarly, yet the use of theory is presented in a very straightfoward and quite easy to understand manner. Those who have stuggled with the use of theory in the past will find this book to be very helpful.
