Description - Small-Scale Research by Peter T. Knight

Small-Scale Research is a direct, comprehensive guide to doing theses, dissertations, papers and projects. Peter Knight systematically works through the central methods of inquiry and demonstrates the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches. He: * uses a direct writing style with plenty of examples from across a good range of social sciences, including history, and the caring professions * makes extensive use of tables, figures and boxes to provide convenient summaries and illustrations * offers pragmatic advice on when and how to use small-scale methods, recognizing that small-scale researchers are usually short on time and resources Behind the authors pragmatic approach, is the principle that research is, above all, about thinking. Peter Knight argues that it is not enough to simply apply research methods, as sense-making and claims-making are also central to good research practice. Timely, assured and written with the needs of students uppermost, Small-Scale Methods is an indispensable resource of research methods. The book is presented in the same effective style as the author's previous book Interviewing for Social Scientists (Sage, 1999).
