This innovative research design text will help you make informed choices when carrying out your research project. Covering both qualitative and quantitative approaches, and with examples drawn from a wide range of social science disciplines, the authors explain what is at stake when choosing a research design, and discuss the trade-offs that researchers have to make when considering issues such as: - causality
- categories and classification
- heterogeneity
- interdependence
- time
This book will appeal to students and researchers looking for an in-depth understanding of research design issues to help them design their projects in a thoughtful and responsible way.

This volume takes seriously the goal of unifying qualitative and quantitative methods, providing a coherent framework for understanding research design in the social science. Highly recommended.

Magetti, Gilardi, and Radaelli provide scholars with a forum to reflect on the 'thinking' and 'doing' of social research. The authors deftly tackle the major issues related to the construction of causal explanations. An excellent primer to research design and analysis, that will cause seasoned readers to rethink core assumptions of research design and methods.
