Product description


The authors do a great job in including many research topics in the text--it is the book's major strength. Also it is very well-organized, which helps students see the logical progression among topics. As the Instructor, I enjoy how the book's level of specificity. (Brandy Faulkner Current Edition Review--Faulkner 2010-05-14)

"Political Science Research Methods' primary strengths are the intuitive and example-based discussions of the necessity of and the execution of research methods. Simply put, it is an easier book through which to understand the research process in political science, see examples of that research process in journals, and to begin to comprehend how the research process would be integrated in the student's own research program." (David Sacko Current Edition Review--Sacko 2010-05-14)

"What I really like about the book is its simplicity and straightforward language. Methods is usually a tough subject matter for students to wrap their heads around. This text I find cogent, clear, and 'doable' for students."

"I truly believe this is one of the best texts for methods out there―for the range of students we have at my school in terms of ability and aptitude... Compared to other texts I have examined (and I have examined many), this one is the best, in my opinion, for my students." (Gina Woodall Current Edition Review--Woodall 2010-05-14)

"The book is very clearly written and comprehensive and does a fine job in covering most of the essential criteria of a certain type of empirical political science research." (Nick Jorgensen Current Edition Review--Jorgensen 2010-05-14)
