Approachable,accessible & unbiased, definately worth reading
on 2 November 2000
This clear, concise book is a god-send for the student (or general reader alike) interested in carrying out a sociology-based research project. The text is lively, enthusiastic, laying emphasis, through the voice of many experts, on the best ways to carry out a social investigation.
Although the text is hard going in a few places with an occasional assumption of prior knowledge, its strategically placed references to real world research and well-thought out case studies make this a student-essential reference book.
Definitely one to keep on the shelf and dip into!
