Research Strategies in the Social Sciences by Elinor Scarbrough

Book Description

In this single, accessible volume, a team of international experts sets out a range of analytic tools available to social scientists from the cutting edge of social science methodolgy. In contrast to much of the existing literature, which is often of daunting complexity, this volume presents social scientists with some experience with a guide through the maze of advanced techniques applicable across the range of the social sciences. The first chapters outline ways in which the revolution in computing power is transforming the working environment for social scientists, extending their analytic reach, and opening up new research horizons. The empirical chapters each present a particular approach to data analysis, discussing the underlying logic and demonstrating its application by working through a substantive example - with mathematical reasoning kept to a minimum. The theoretical chapters provide an introduction to recently developing approaches to social science research. Each chapter includes ample references to other works in the field, and to appropriate software programs, for those who are keen to pursue a particular approach in greater detail.

A decline in religious belief, waning class values, rising postmaterialism, along with Green values, postmodernism and feminism, indicate a profound and widespread change in western values. This volume tracks these changes and analyses their impact on political efficacy, interest, activity, trust, voting and involvement in new social movements.

Scope of Government by Elinor Scarbrough Scope of Government, Paperback (September 1998)

Long-term survey data reveal persistently high levels of support across Western Europe for the public provision of welfare and social security services. This volume reaches surprising conclusions about theories of ungovernability, overload, the welfare state backlash, and tax revolt.
