Summary

Sidestepping detailed theoretical debates and focusing on the core commonalities, this text provides students with a toolkit of methods, explains why and when each method is used, and demonstrates how they are used. For clarity and consistence, the authors use the same dataset - reproduced in full - to apply the different processes and outcomes of the analytical methods they cover. Additional data-sets and audio interviews to support the textbook are available online.
