5.0 out of 5 stars The new 'bible' for social scientific research? Almost.., 23 Jan 2010
Ignore the review giving this work 1-star. Bennet & George (2005) is being touted as being the replacement for 'Designing Social Enquiry' and for good reason. The book is extremely well written/structured and does much to illuminate, drawing on examples from the author's own research to showcase the payoffs/trade-offs of good research design. Unlike the King, Keohane, Verba text, Bennet & George do not pretend to be the gatekeepers of science, and instead show the various roles case studies can take in theory testing and theory development and the attached pros/cons. For anybody using qualitative methods in their research, this book is now the standard and is well-worth reading.
