Abstract

In this undergraduate textbook, contributors describe and analyze the theoretical and practical issues of research on society and culture. General topics include research contexts, case studies of collecting and analyzing visual data, and a description of one researcher's practice. Essays discuss the history, policies and theories of social research; literature reviews and surveys; combining qualitative and quantitative data; conducting statistical reasoning and analysis; and preparing the final report. The book closes with a collection of workshop and discussion exercises.
