All social science courses offered at universities or colleges include a research methods module, for which students are expected to purchase a research methods book. These are invariably weighty and expensive at a time when student funds are stretched. Dr Marshall has produced a reader-friendly, plain English and value-for-money solution. In this second edition, he explains the various methods available to social researchers and the basic principles, strengths and weakness involved in the use of both quantitative and qualitative methods. Whether you are new to the subject or an established practitioner this book should prove valuable. Dr Marshall has had many years experience in research and teaching in universities and colleges.
