Summary

This unusual text explores little-known aspects of social science research with readings that focus on dangerous approaches to conducting research. In this collection of readings, students are introduced, through real research examples, to the real way that research is conducted. Whereas teaching and studying research methods can often be a rather dry and cumbersome task, Extreme Methods provides students with interesting and challenging issues and ideas.
