4.0 out of 5 stars Get out the Highlighter pen!, 27 July 2003
By A Customer
For students of politics at degree level, this book is gold! If, like me, a compulsory module has been forced upon you on political science, this is more than adequate to help you bump up those marks. For essays it's particularly good, as each approach, including Marxism, Feminism, Behaviouralsim, Rational Choice and Normative Theory, (to name a few) is covered by a different contributor. (Great for bulking out your bibliography!) As well as approaches, there are also chapters on quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as wider issues such as Ontology and Epistemology, and the role of structure and agancy in political science. It's quite hard-going at first; the first few chapters are saturated with considerations, however once you get into it the format is very easy to digest covering pros and cons of each approach. All in all, worth buying; it was a compulsory text for my 2nd year module, and will be a good core text for any module on political science.

4.0 out of 5 stars Methods, 11 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Theory and Methods in Political Science (Political Analysis) (Paperback)
This is a very useful textbook for anyone wanting an introduction to the different types of methodology and methods applicable to the political science discipline. However, it is a book that has relevance to researchers interested in theory and methods across a much wider field than just political science.

This review is from: Theory and Methods in Political Science (Political Analysis) (Paperback)
I very much like this book. It gives you a terrific overview of the main approaches to political studies. This is relevant to social studies more generally at a post-graduate level. If you need to understand perspectives - buy it.
