Description - International Comparative Research by Linda Hantrais

This authoritative book examines the what, why and how of international comparative research. It offers a comprehensive topic-based overview of the theory and practice of comparative research and addresses the possible concerns of those both funding the research and using the findings. Drawing on illustrations from the extensive international literature as well as real-life comparative studies, the chapters guide readers through the many stages in the research process, from research design and data collection to the analysis and interpretation of findings. In a book that crosses national, societal, cultural and disciplinary boundaries, the author: * Pinpoints practical problems and directs readers to tried and tested solutions, including multiple method strategies. * Draws on examples of policy transfer to examine how comparative research can inform policy making * Provides guidance on the management of international research teams and projects. This resource is the ultimate reference tool for students, researchers and practitioners undertaking comparative research projects in international settings across the social sciences and humanities.
