Research Skills for Policy and Development by Alan Thomas

Book Description

This book is a critical guide to conducting investigations under time- and resource-pressured conditions, equipping readers with the key skills and approaches for research designed to influence or inform development policies. Unlike a simple 'how to' guide, Research Skills for Policy and Development also provides a critique of various methods and situates these approaches within 'real life' organisational settings, enabling those working in or studying development to locate, evaluate and use relevant information quickly but rigorously. The successor to Finding Out Fast (SAGE, 1998) it reflects the changes in development management theories and practice over the last seven years, and includes new material and advice on critical use of the web as a resource and research tool. It is essential reading for development managers in NGOs and public sector agencies as well as students of development management and development studies more generally.

Books By Author Alan Thomas

Republic of Equals by Alan Thomas Republic of Equals, Hardback (December 2016)

This first book length study of property-owning democracy argues that a society in which capital is universally accessible to all citizens uniquely meets the demands of justice. It defends a renovated form of capitalism in which the free market is no longer a threat to social democratic values, but is potentially convergent with them.

Natural Curiosity by Alan Thomas Natural Curiosity, Paperback (June 2016)

After making the choice to leave formal education, Lisa Carne's children embarked upon a path of self-directed learning powered by their interest in natural history. This book provides a fascinating and humorous commentary on unschooling from the perspective of a family who have seen both sides of the education system.

Bernard Williams by Alan Thomas Bernard Williams, Paperback (September 2007)

An overview of Bernard Williams' influential contribution to moral philosophy.

Value and Context by Alan Thomas Value and Context, Hardback (July 2006)

Presents a study of the status of value and its relation to the contexts in which evaluative claims are justified. This work articulates and defends the view that human beings do possess moral and political knowledge, but that it is historically and culturally contextual knowledge in ways that, say, mathematical or chemical knowledge is not.
