Case Study Research: Principles and Practices provides a general understanding of the case study method as well as specific tools for its successful implementation. These tools are applicable in a variety of fields including anthropology, business and management, communications, economics, education, medicine, political science, psychology, social work, and sociology. Topics include: a survey of case study approaches; a methodologically tractable definition of 'case study'; strategies for case selection, including random sampling and other algorithmic approaches; quantitative and qualitative modes of case study analysis; and problems of internal and external validity. The second edition of this core textbook is designed to be accessible to readers who are new to the subject and is thoroughly revised and updated, incorporating recent research, numerous up-to-date studies and comprehensive lecture slides.

“Case Study Research is a book with a mission. What John Gerring aims for, and contributes with great success, is a conceptual manifesto and foundational guidelines that demarcate the case study approach as a research methodology.”
-David Shulman, Lafayette College, American Anthropologist
“Having read this book, readers will leave with a better understanding of the historic and present complexities within the case study method. Gerring provides us with concrete information about how and when this method is used, how it can be used better, and, despite all the controversy and doubt regarding this choice of method, that it continues to be useful within the social sciences.”
-Marybeth C. Stalp, University of Northern Iowa, Contemporary Sociology
“In this book the author provides a general understanding of the case study, as well as the tools and techniques necessary for its successful implementation.”
-C.M. O’Brien, International Statistical Review
"John Gerring, an Associate Professor of political science at Boston University, has written a thoughtful monograph on the case study method in social research...The book presents categorizations and typologies of case study types and techniques that are firmly rooted in previous research, yet the organization of the material is quite innovative."
-Edward Cohen, Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
"[...]provocative new methodological treatise[...]This book does more than any in recent memory to bring case studies out of the shadows and into their proper, proudly central place in political science."
-Dan Slater, University of Chicago, Perspectives on Politics
