Description - Research Methods by Patrick McNeill

Since its first edition in 1985, Patrick McNeill's "Research Methods "has become a classic introductory text for students of sociology at A level and in undergraduate courses as well as for a range of specialists in education, business, social care and medicine who need a brief but authoritative account of how sociologists set about conducting research. After a brief overview of the history of sociological research which introduces key concepts, this new edition, co-authored with Steve Chapman, describes the main sociological research methods, and includes sections on theory, science and values. It retains the clarity of style of the second edition, and brings the content up to date in terms of: * references to research studies * developments in relevant sociological theory * developments in research methodology * new material on the presentation of research findings.
