For courses in Experimental Methods and in Research Methods for Political Science and Sociology
A stress-free and enjoyable approach to the research methods course
Understanding Research is a practical and visually appealing introduction to research. Whether students become producers or consumers of research, W. Lawrence Neuman shows them that the subject is both interesting and highly relevant to their lives and professional work. The Second Edition makes the essentials of doing high-quality research accessible, in ways that create excitement about the research process. Core principles, processes, and procedures of research are distilled — and presented with salient real-world examples and the latest academic studies — in a manner that students will want to learn them.
