Summary
This revised and expanded edition of a bestselling text incorporates the latest developments in social research. Additions to each chapter do further justice to ideas on the research process in general and aspects of its practice in particular. Chapter summaries, questions for reflection and signposts to further reading are incorporated into a new textbook format. The aim of the book, however, remains the same: to bridge the gap between theory and methods in social research, each of which is essential to understanding the dynamics of social relations. The style remains clear and accessible and the basic structure, similar. This book will have wide appeals as an introduction for undergraduates studying the methods and techniques of social science, as well as for postgraduate courses in research methods. In addition, it will enable those practising and teaching social research to stay abreast of key developments in the field
