Synopsis
Teaches students to effectively evaluate the research of others and learn how to conduct their ownWhen exposing students to political science's most important research methods, comprehensive coverage as well as clear and straightforward language are paramount. In the trusted tradition of previous editions, this new fifth edition covers all of the major research methods of the discipline and leads students step by step through the logic of research design. The new edition now gives even greater attention to promising new research tools such as online search engines, formal modelling, and logistic regression. New and updated examples from contemporary research problems make the text especially relevant and engaging. Guaranteed to please instructors looking for useful reinforcement and practice, a new companion student workbook meaningfully ties exercises and assignments to learning objectives covered in each chapter.
