Description

In this new Sixth Edition of his perennially successful social research text, author Russell K. Schutt continues to make research come alive through research stories that illustrate the methods presented in each chapter and hands-on exercises that help students learn by doing. The book helps students understand research methods as an integrated whole; appreciate the value of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies; and understand the need to make ethical research decisions, while also learning about contemporary social issues like homelessness, drug abuse, and the effect of the Internet on social relations. The new edition features a new streamlined introduction to research; new and updated social research examples and end-of-chapter exercises; new coverage of qualitative techniques such as narrative analysis, conversation analysis and visual methods; a greater focus on racial, ethnic, gender, and cultural diversity; and expanded coverage of ethical issues.
