Summary
    Advanced Research Methods for the Social Sciences is a unique anthology featuring readings and summaries selected and prepared by actual users of the material – undergraduate students who had just completed a required research methods course.

    The book includes a wide array of works by leading researchers and provides an equal balance of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research methods with a critical focus. The papers selected for inclusion were originally written by internationally acclaimed researchers in their respective fields.

    Written in a conversational tone that is easily accessible to students, Advanced Research Methods explores complex research methods in a comprehensive, logical way. The book is appropriate for courses in criminal justice, criminology, sociology, political science, psychology, and interdisciplinary studies.
