Unobtrusive Measures by Eugene J. Webb

Book Description

Thirty-five years ago, the four authors of this book addressed the problem of validity in social science research. This revised edition builds on the earlier version's drive to justify novel techniques of survey and archival research. Richly illustrated throughout, the purpose of this book is to authorize and motivate ingenuity in obtaining information. The authors combine very different methods so that research results can withstand the 'threats to validity' which so frequently invalidate single-measure, conventional research.

Author Biography - Eugene J. Webb

During his more than 25 years at the university's Business School, he studied organizations and the nature of the relationships among employees as well as the nature of competition among corporations. He played an early role in bringing the methods of behavioral psychology into the curriculum of business schools. The annual Campbell Prizes, which honor the memory of distinguished social scientist Donald T. Campbell, recognize outstanding social science research conducted by Lehigh students. Donald T. Campbell passed away on May 6, 1996, leaving a legacy of high standards for social science inquiry to Lehigh University and the national and international social science community. He was University Professor of Social Relations, Psychology, and Education at Lehigh University until he retired in 1994. Campbell received his A.B. and Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, and he held teaching positions at Northwestern University, Syracuse University, University of Chicago, and Ohio State University. During his career, he also lectured at Oxford, Harvard, and Yale Universities. He served as president of the American Psychological Association and was a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Campbell received numerous honorary degrees and awards. He wrote more than 235 articles in the areas of social psychology, sociology, anthropology, education, and philosophy, covering a broad scope of topics from social science methodology to philosophy of science. The Campbell Prize honors this aspiration for excellence. The prize of $500 is awarded for social science papers of high quality, methodological originality, and societal significance, as embodied in the work of the late Donald T. Campbell. Donald Campbell and his remarkable career earned a New York Times obituary and a Lehigh University faculty memorial resolution. Professor Schwartz came to Syracuse after almost 25 years as a distinguished teacher and scholar in both law and sociology. He is the author of many scholarly publications in both fields, including the books Society and the Legal Order, Unobtrusive Measures, Criminal Law: Theory and Process, and the Handbook of Regulation and Administrative Law. He is recognized as a leading authority on law and society. He taught on the law and sociology faculties at Northwestern and Yale universities and was dean and professor of law at State University of New York at Buffalo. Professor Schwartz was the founding editor of the Law and Society Review. Professor Schwartz teaches courses in law and society, public administration and legal process, and criminal law.
