'Social Science Methodology speaks across paradigms. It is a 'must read' not just for graduate students, but for scholars across fields as Gerring gets to the core of what social scientists do. The bottom line is that readers reach a practical end, which is knowing what approach to use when and how to adapt based on the question posed.' Janet M. Box-Steffensmeier, Vernal Riffe Professor of Political Science and Courtesy Professor of Sociology, Ohio State University
'Gerring's book is simultaneously provocative and wise. It is the former in that it advocates for a unified (though not singular) social science methodology. It is the latter in the many ways it recommends that we think about and do science. On the one hand, Gerring has offered a compelling case for what unifies social science methodology. This should be debated for years to come. On the other hand, students of social science will benefit enormously by closely reading this sage volume. They will find particularly valuable his thorough, but nontechnical presentation of causal analysis.' Christopher Winship, Diker-Tishman Professor of Sociology, Harvard University
'The second edition presents a remarkable updating and expansion of Gerring's arguments and presentation. A tremendous amount of careful work went into the revisions, and both methodologists and teachers of methodology owe Gerring an enormous debt for producing an even more compelling version of what was already an outstanding book.' David Collier, Chancellor's Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
'Social Science Methodology is a book with a wealth of well-organised material aimed at both students and practitioners of social science.' Acta Politica
