Social Research by Sotirios Sarantakos
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The third edition of Social Research offers a clear and scholarly introduction to social research methods for undergraduates across a range of social science disciplines. It is compact and orderly in its presentation and balanced in its discussion of different methods. Organized to reflect the stages of the research process, from questions through to answers, the book is nonetheless more than a research methods 'recipe book', providing students with an insight into theoretical questions as well as into practical challenges and issues. The new edition boasts a stronger and more transparent structure, greater emphasis on research ethics and feminist research, and increased pedagogical support, including a companion website at http://www to be available on publication.
