Over the past few decades there has been a major shift in research methodology - away from technicist to more contextual and pragmatic approaches. This is reflected in a greater emphasis on interdisciplinary and applied research skills, the concurrent use of qualitative and quantitative methods, and a more sophisticated understanding of the epistemological grounding of research. This lively and engaging book incorporates these new trends while also providing comprehensive coverage of the full range of established research approaches and techniques. The book is structured to facilitate systematic study of each phase of the research process in sequence. It aims to ground research methodology in terms of practical outcomes, and to equip students both with applied technical know-how and with the conceptual tools to evaluate and contextualise their work in terms of larger social and philosophical issues. The text is richly supplemented by photographs, case studies, tips and checklists.
